I am researching some codes.the below lines make me puzzle.
I don't understand the meaing of them
c = uci.gef.CmdSetMode.class;
c = uci.gef.ModePlace.class;
c = uci.gef.ModeModify.class;
c = uci.gef.SelectionResize.class;
c = uci.ui.ColorRenderer.class;
c = uci.ui.Swatch.class;
c = uci.util.EnumerationEmpty.class;
c = uci.util.EnumerationSingle.class;
c = uci.uml.util.GenCompositeClasses.class;
c = uci.uml.visual.FigClass.class;
c = uci.uml.visual.FigPackage.class;
c = uci.uml.visual.FigInterface.class;
c = uci.uml.visual.FigAssociation.class;
c = uci.uml.visual.FigGeneralization.class;
c = uci.uml.visual.FigRealization.class;
System.out.println(" done preloading");
I guessed that it will make a shorter time in instancing object.But I make some test that proved my guess is wrong.
Is there anyone give me some ideas?

is this a puzzle or what,
if you don't mind, could you please (i repeat please)
tell us how you got this code or where you found it?
that way, I think we could make a closer guess.
At this stage, if the comments mean something to me then. I would say:
This is a part of code from a static block which is attempting
to load some class libraries.

I got these codes from the argo-uml that is a open source project.
I don't understand why it declare these classes during the starup.Could it improve the performance? I read the java doc carefully,but get nothing about it. I tested the below code and
find the consumed time is same. anyone can tell me the benefits
of these codes.
code 1:
new ClassA();
new ClassB();
code 2:
Class c = ClassA.class;
c = ClassB.class;
new ClassA();
new ClassB();
I agree. Here's the link:
