Subject [jira] Commented: (IBATIS-322) Classloader problems in some environments.
Date Tue, 11 Jul 2006 21:41:31 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IBATIS-322?page=comments#action_12420447 ] 

Jeff Butler commented on IBATIS-322:
------------------------------------

After I wrote my previous comment, I got to wondering - "why isn't iBATIS totally consistent
about creating objects?

Turns out we're only using Class.forName() in a handful of situations, and there is no reason
to do it that way.  I'll make the change so that we consistently use the methods in the Resources
class.

By the way - the default behavior for that class is to do exactly what's described - so it
might solve the issue completely.

> iBatis uses Class.forName to find classes. 
> In netbeans platform here is problem when iBatis used as module, because netbeans restricts
loading classes, not declared as dependency for calling module. This lead to circular dependencies,
because calling module contains dao implementation classes and ibatis should depend on them
to be able to load them and in main module should depend on ibatis to be able to use ibatis
classes.
> Netbeans allow to load with slightly different way: 
> ClassLoader l = Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader();
> Class c = l.loadClass("some.module.Class");
> Is it possible to allow developer to specify classloader wrapper via sqlmap.xml, daomap.xml
etc.
