[Bug java/15474] libgcj jar file should always be in classpath at runtime

------- Additional Comments From mark at gcc dot gnu dot org  2004-05-16 12:06 -------
What is the real reason you want this?
It seems strange to return a byte code array for a class that hasn't been loaded
from byte code in the first place. And adding this makes the bootstrap
classloader (which each and every classloader delegates to before doing its own
lookup) more inefficient.

libgcj.jar is only needed for compiling classes. It is out precompiled header
file so to speak. It isn't needed at runtime. Your proposal means we open an
extra file during startup and do a lookup for each child classloader of the
bootstrap classloader when they want to load a class or resource.

I suspect there is a bug or design flaw in your program if you need this
funtionality. Most likely you need a setting in your program to point it to the
byte code class archive you want to access. If you could post a real snippet of
code that uses this functionality we can most likely provide you with a cleaner
way of doing this.
