ClassLoader in Struts & Singleton

Hi mates,
I am programming a Singleton class that actually holds some configuration-information for my struts application. By doing so, i eventually come to know that ClassLoaders may create more than one singleton objects..And My question is that Struts Controller (1.2 what i'm using) loads the action classes using classloaders ? if so, is there will be two/or more singleton objects created ?

Thanks in advance ;-)

Why are you programming the configuration data as a Singleton class?

Aside, classloaders do no instantiate (create) objects, they only load classes. There is a difference.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
