how do you create a new instance of ClassLoader? Should I create a DiskClassLoader extends ClassLoader class?
> Hi, > A ClassLoader always caches the classes it previously loaded and are found using the method findLoadedClass. There is no way to unregister a class in a classloader. So if u want to reload a class from the disk the only way is to create a new Instance of the Class Loader itself and load the changed class file using the new object.
