I have a requirement to make entry to the database for all the custom classes(other than standard ones provided by Java),whenever these are loaded in the application. I can think of the following approach

-- have static block in all the user defined classes
-- write the required database loading part in the static block.

Do you think that there is a better approach for this?

Moving to our databases forum.

I suggest you have classes which simply connect to the database, taking care of any concurrency problems. Then use those classes for all database access. I presume you have read the relevant Java™ Tutorials section?
I agree. Here's the link:
