Everything you need to know about Java Classloaders


Classloaders: a New Hope.
In the session, we’ll get into a wonderful world where we control exactly where from and what classes does the JVM load. We will design a powerful plugin system that carefully balances flexibility and simplicity. We’ll define classes from bytes, from urls, even from a photo of a rabbit.

But the path to mastery is not a walk in the park. We’ll find mean exception, then even meaner exceptions. Then exceptions whose message doesn’t fit on the screen and is undecipherable. We’ll have to debug everything, challenge assumptions and show that your will is stronger than the soulless stubbornness of Tomcat’s classloading scheme.
