Subject StandardClassLoader ?
Date Thu, 05 Aug 2004 06:12:19 GMT
Is there any reason we still need StandardClassLoader ? It seems it is 
only used once, in ClassLoaderFactory, and it is used exactly like a 
regular URLClassLoader - the only thing that needs to be moved is the 
convert() method. The code itself is just debug and duplication of 
URLClassLoader - the reverse loading is not used and it's not even 
really implemented in all parts of the code.

It would reduce in half the complexity in the loader package :-), and
it would make 'embeded' and 'standalone' more similar ( embeded doesn't
usually use Bootstrap and StandardClassLoader but the embedding app loader).
