Tiles uses Class.forName() to load Controller class

           Summary: Tiles uses Class.forName() to load Controller class
           Product: Struts
           Version: 1.1 RC1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Tiles framework
        AssignedTo: struts-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: bruyeron@fullsix.com


At the end of org.apache.struts.tiles.TilesUtilImpl:

    /**
     * Return the <code>Class</code> object for the specified fully qualified
     * class name, from the underlying class loader.
     *
     * @param className Fully qualified class name to be loaded
     * @return Class object
     * @exception ClassNotFoundException if the class cannot be found
     */
  public Class applicationClass(String className) throws ClassNotFoundException
  {
  return Class.forName(className);
  }

For some reason this works in Tomcat 4.1.24, but it does not in iPlanet 6.0 Web
Server SP2. Tiles does not work at all in iPlanet if one uses custom tiles
controllers.

Class.forName() is wrong in a webapp context, the Context class loader should be
used instead (via Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader() ).

The problem is also in HEAD.
