General J2EE: Load class within Tag
I've a tag class (A extends TagSupport) in my app classpath. I also have another class inside a war (myEar/myWar/WEB_INF/classes).
My problem is that i want to make an instance of B inside A. I've tried using .getClassLoader().loadClass(B).newInstance(), but A's classloader cannot 'see' B.
Is there any way to use B's classloader, so I can load it inside A's code, or do i have to move my classes? I think moving A to myWar, or moving B to the classpath should work...
Thanks in advance.
May be you can consider packaging the content in the classes folder into a jar file and put it in the lid dir of you application. By that it will be available within the same context. (I assume your clas A is in a jar file already in the lib folder too).
Hope this helps.
