Hi ,
I have a question regarding packaging and loading classes from seperate jar files. I have some interface classes in one package ( jar file) and implementation classes in other jar file. Now the problem is the package ( jar ) file containing interfaces has to call implementation class which is in seperate jar . Only thing i suppose to know is the implemented class name and nothing else. I am not sure , how will i be able to do that .

Any Help will be greatly appreciated
Thanks a lot

If you have access to the implementation at compile time : no problem.
(Your jars must only be in your classpath.)

Otherwise, one way to do this is :



Thre's a lot of examples in Java : JDBC Drivers (interface is part of Java API, implementations are DB Vendors API...), a lot of J2EE things (servlets, JMS, etc.)

AFAIK as long in the same class path, I think it doesn't matter.
