You're in the same situation as I am in, so you may want to refer to the question that I will be asking.  To what I've researched and found from associates, you can not redefine a classpath once a VM has been instantiated.  You can however, define classes (or load classes) while the vm is loaded.  Look at the Classloader and System objects.

have you tried:
String cp = System.getProperty("java.class.path");
cp += ";new_jar.jar";
System.setProperty("java.class.path", cp);

Hi nixj14,
Thanks for giving me a link. But I can not open this link.  I guess it need a hotmail login first or it will check hotmail user, then go to some page. Could you copy them to me ?  Your hlep will be appreciated very much. Gary

Hi nixj14,
Thanks for your help. I have run your example and it works fine.
Now I can load another class and run it from this classloader/example. But when I run one java class, it need some other java classes, like help.jar, util.jar. I have to put these jar files into classpath . There is no way to add these jar files into class path dynamically or use classloader to add these jar files into classpath ??  Again thanks for your help.
Gary

Yeah, I'm running through a similar problem.  I was able to download some good source to add jars into your classpath.

Try this
