    Dynamic class loading, SPI?  advice please

    fatbatman Novice

      Hello,

      I have a custom server that I run in JBoss within an MBean. This server needs to dynamically initialise certain objects seperate from the main core of the custom server.
      I tried to load these classes with using standard Class.forName(..) type stuff but I kept getting class loader errors when running within JBoss (3.2.6).
      How should I go about dynamically loading classes within an Mbean? The classes are likely to be bundled within different .jar files inside the MBean directory. Could I use the SPI, service provide interface? or if there a better method I should use. Any suggestions would be much appreciated as I'm not really sure what is the most "JBoss" way of solving this problem.

      best wishes
