    class unloading in jboss 3.2.1

    Tom Döhler Newbie

      Hi,

      the java spec says that a java class is unloaded by the vm if its classloader is
      subject to garbage collection. I use UnifiedClassLoaderRepository3 in my application to achieve scoped class loading per deployed ear file.

      It seems that if I undeploy an existing application, its classes get never unloaded by the VM. This is a problem if I use static caches and singletons.

      How does class unloading work with scoped class loader repository ?

      Thanks in advance.

      Bye Tom
