    How can I intercept methods in java.net.* or javax.*.*?

    Mehdi Azarmi Newbie

      I found this method in the SystemClassLoader.java (JBoss AOP source code)



          * Load jre classes from the parent classloader


          * @param name the class name

          * @return the class

          * @throws ClassNotFoundException when there is no class


         protected Class<?> loadClassByDelegation(String name)

            throws ClassNotFoundException


            // FIXME: Only works for Sun for now

            if (name.startsWith("java.") || name.startsWith("javax.")

               || name.startsWith("sun.") || name.startsWith("com.sun.")

               || name.startsWith("org.apache.xerces.") || name.startsWith("org.xml.sax.")

               || name.startsWith("org.w3c.dom."))

               return getParent().loadClass(name);



            return null;



      How can I address this "FIXME"?

      Is there any simpler way to intercept those methods?


      Thank you,
