Custom decryption class loader

Posted by Soumya Dutta on April 14, 2001 at 7:00 AM

Hi all,

I have to create a custom class-loader to decrypt and load classes from an encrypted jar file (which has class files encrypted in some manner).

Can anybody help me through this? I am not able to appreciate the difference between defineClass() and loadClass() methods of the java.lang.ClassLoader abstract class.

Besides, how can I create instances of the encrypted classes, once i have the byte array containing the byte-codes of the classes?

Would be very grateful for any help. Thanks in advance,
- Dutta.
