URLClassLoader How To Use?

     /* Extract Classes From Jar */

        myATP.extractFromJar(fileList1, jarFile);

      /* Load Classes Into JavaVM */

        pathname = jarFile.getPath();
        workingDir = new URL(pathname);
        urls[0] = workingDir;
        try {
            loader = new URLClassLoader(urls);
            loader.findClass("Agent.class");
            loader.findClass("tcpClient.class");
        } catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
        }

I get errors with both the loader.findClass lines, the error is:
testReceive.java:59: findClass(java.lang.String) has protected access in java.net.URLClassLoader

Why not call

Class agentClass = loader.loadClass("Agent.class");

?

The method findClass(..) is a protected method which is a part of the ClassLoader's API to let you build your own customized ClassLoaders, do what CEHJ says, he knows ;)

Use loadClass(..), or better yet, Class.forName(String className, boolean initialize, ClassLoader loader);

Or skip extracting the files from the jar and do the following:

   workingDir = new URL("jar:file:///" + pathname);
   URClassLoader loader = new URLClassLoader(new URL[]{workingDir});
   loader.loadClass("Agent.class");    // provided Agent.class is defined in the default package, otherwise its package is needed as well
