On class.forname() in JDBC

Hi All,

I have below questions on class.forname() statement in JDBC connecion

1. If we do like class.forname("com.a.b.c");class.forname("com.p.q.r");...
then will JVM load all classes or it will load only first one (or last one) and will ignore all others?

2. Also after using class.forname(("com.a.b.c"); we get connection as DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql:///test",user,pass) so then how exactly database url finds its corrosponding class which has been loaded using class.forname(). (if it uses reflextion, then can anybody pls tell me how it exactly works).

Regards
