How to load a Class that is not on the classpath E-mail
User Rating: / 15
PoorBest 

This Java tip illustrates a method of loading a Class that is not on the classpath. Further, developer may user a URLClassLoader to load classes in any directory, i.e. files are converted into URLs and then loaded again in the class.

    // Create a File object on the root of the directory 
    // containing the class file
    File file = new File("c:\\class\\");
    
    try {
        // Convert File to a URL
        URL url = file.toURL();          // file:/c:/class/
        URL[] urls = new URL[]{url};
    
        // Create a new class loader with the directory
        ClassLoader loader = new URLClassLoader(urls);
    
        // Load in the class; Class.childclass should be located in
        // the directory file:/c:/class/user/information
        Class cls = loader.loadClass("user.informatin.Class");
    catch (MalformedURLException e) {
    catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
    }
