If I use URLClassLoader to load a class then do I need all other dependent jars in the classpath to invoke the class.getDeclaredMethods()? would it be throwing an exception if I don't include the jars, that my class is dependent on, in the classpath.

It would most likely throw a ClassNotFoundException if the jar files that contain the classes are not present.
