    [FLINK-4485] close and remove user class loader after job completion

    Keeping the user class loader around after job completion may lead to
    excessive temp space usage because all user jars are kept until the
    class loader is garbage collected. Tests showed that garbage collection
    can be delayed for a long time after the class loader is not referenced
    anymore. Note that for the class loader to not be referenced anymore,
    its job has to be removed from the archive.
    
    The fastest way to minimize temp space usage is to close and remove the
    URLClassloader after job completion. This requires us to keep a
    serializable copy of all data which needs the user class loader after
    job completion, e.g. to display data on the web interface.
