PreferredClassLoader doesn't implement preferred semantics for getResources(String)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: RIVER-19
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RIVER-19
             Project: River
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Mark Brouwer


While {{PreferredClassLoader.getResource(String)}} obeys preferred classes semantics, there
is no overridden {{getResources(String)}} method that does the same. This can lead to nasty
consequences with the service provider mechanism as is used throughout the JDK and JTSK code,
namely definitions for service providers are made visible through {{getResources(String)}}
while the implementing classes might have been shielded due to the PREFERRED.LIST effective.

Up to J2SE 1.4.2 it was not possible to implement preferred classes semantics as {{ClassLoader.getResources(String)}}
was declared {{final}}, but as soon as the Jini specs require J2SE 5.0 as minimum we are safe
to implement the correct behavior for {{PreferredClassLoader.getResources(String)}}, see also
JDC bug [4432218|http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4432218].
