setting dynamic classpath or import statement

Posted by Preethi Mohan on October 23, 2001 at 6:58 AM

Even we tried with the setProperty and faced the same problem that is mentioned below.

Is there a way to dynamically set the import statement to a folder which is not added in the classpath??

Thank you,

> We tried setting the classpath with setproperty method. The result was that when we checked the resulting classpath with getproperty method, it seemed that the classpath was updated ok. But when trying to use the classes via the new classpath in the same application, the classes were not found. It seems that the java virtual machine does read the class.path system property only upon jvm startup.
