point.  IDEs inparticular need help.

                 Key: RIVER-336
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RIVER-336
             Project: River
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: net_jini_loader
    Affects Versions: AR3
            Reporter: Gregg Wonderly


The RMIClassLoader class and RMIClassLoaderSPI is currently the control point for managing
the "platform" view of how classes are loaded.  In IDEs and other different environments,
the "parent" classloader view, is not always the "system class loader".  There are some other
variations on class loading that seem to indicate that while RMIClassLoaderSPI can be plugged
into, it doesn't always provide quite the right facilities because even plugging into the
system class loader to override it might not be possible.

The diffs included here show some preliminary work that I did investigating this issue to
try and make it possible to discover and load Jini servers within the netbeans IDE.

Refinement and some rework will be needed, and some other investigation into other platforms
such as JEE and other IDEs would be helpful in making sure we understand what is really needed.
 Even OSGi would be something to look at.
