of Thread Context ClassLoader considered harmful?
I am using Apache XMLBeans 2.4 within Equinox 3.5,
and am running into
problems. Specifically, I (and others [1,2] -
references at bottom) have
noticed that a specific part of the type
resolution process breaks when
run in an OSGi environment.
After some investigation, I have found that
XMLBeans is creating its
SchemaTypeLoader objects with the current thread's
classloader. My experience has been that any
time a library does this
and then needs to load classes that are in a
different OSGi bundle, the
classes can not be resolved.
So I suppose my questions are: Could Equinox do
more to prevent this
kind of use-case from breaking down?
Alternatively, for compatibility
with an OSGi environment, is using a TCCL
considered harmful? If so,
what should I suggest in my XMLBeans ticket as an
