DISCLAIMER: These notes are from the defunct k8 project which precedes SquirrelJME. The notes for SquirrelJME start on 2016/02/26! The k8 project was effectively a Java SE 8 operating system and as such all of the notes are in the context of that scope. That project is no longer my goal as SquirrelJME is the spiritual successor to it.

Ok, so looking for DeletePathComparator, the runtime calls ClassLoader.loadClass(). That checks if the class is already loaded and if it is not, then it is loaded. Then it calls findClass in URLClassLoader. However, I do not know which URLClassLoader it is using. I actually have a large number of them for each stage of the bootstrap.


Today was a quite busy day and tomorrow will also be quite busy, so less likely that I will get programming done. However, luckily for me the water has thawed out so I have a fresh supply of water now. Also have just taken a shower which is quite nice.
