Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 48414] Use of Class.forName may not work well in osgi environment
Date Sat, 16 Jan 2010 08:28:32 GMT

--- Comment #6 from david jencks <> 2010-01-16 00:28:28 UTC ---
IIRC there were two objections to the patch on the dev list:
1. it doesn't cover all uses of Class.forName()
2. it uses the per-web-app InstanceManager to create the system listeners for a
web app rather than a system-wide object
and it was suggested that injecting a system-wide classloader for reflective
class loading would be a good solution.

I'm willing to work on solving (1) and (2) through something like a system-wide
instance manager, but not through direct use of a classloader.  If the
developers insist on a classloader I'd suggest closing this as "wont' fix"
