Episode 50. How many Classes would a ClassLoader Load if the ClassLoader was Loading the parent Classes?

You worked with them "all the time", whenever you know it or not! Classloaders are the little workers that make sure all the code is there and ready to be executed. Bob revisits this topics and goes into more detail on how the ClassLoading hierarchy works, when to watch out, and how different frameworks (OSGI, and Java EE containers) may be configured to load classes. If you have run into "ClassNotFound" exceptions, this can help you explain why!
