There are other ways to do it:

Add your jars to the bootstrap classpath by modifying setclasspath.bat 
(assuming you're using the scripts not the service to start and stop tc).

According to the release notes you can also change the manifest file in 
the bootstrap.jar to point to your own jmx implementations.
