Hi all,

I wrote a java program to load a .class file from a jar file.
The .class file resides in a different namespace than that of this java program.

I am using Class.forName(fully qualified class name) which is throwing a java.lang.ClassNotFoundException exception during runtime.

Code is as follows:



Any input is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I don't think that's how to dynamically load a JAR. Try to use URLClassLoader.
