Re: [equinox-dev] Component Resolve Thread and the context classloader

Please open a bug about this against the compendium component at https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=Equinox

I'm not sure why the DS implementation (Executor class) is setting the context class loader to null. Maybe it was exposing classes to components that should not be available. In Equinox we set the context class loader to a special class loader that scopes the available classes down to the calling bundle. This allows us to use other mechanisms (like buddy class loading) to assist in running legacy code that uses the context class loader.

[equinox-dev] Component Resolve Thread and the context classloader




Hi all,

Iâm working on a system that makes heavy use of Declarative Services. In troubleshooting some classloading problems, weâve noticed that the Component Resolve Thread (backed by the Executor class) sets the context classloader to be null.

This seems to cause problems with Swing and other systems that make use of the context classloader (Esper was the source of our problems).

Is there a reason that this is set as it is? If so, what might be a good work-around?

Thanks,
-Mike Furtak
