Show the class that is loading

Hi i have an applet that take a lot of classes to load and i have a splash screen that display the user a little image with a JProgressBar with the setIndeterminate() to true. For this i don't care, but what i want is to do like acrobat software that display all plugin that is loading. So when the splashscreen start i want it to display all classes that is loading at the moment the jre load it.

Is there a dynamic way? Cause i know i can use
Class thatClass = Class.forName("TheClassToLoad");
  theObject = thatClass.newInstance();

but each time i will have to add a new class i will add to add these line... so i want  something that will know which classes the java runtime is loading and display the name to the user

thx

That's the only way of doing it, unless you want to write your own classloader and sign your applet...

my applet is already signed, and what do you mean when you said "write your own classloader"? Will i have to load EACH class manually with the code i post in my question???

cause if i'm not wrong, if i load my applet class the jre will automatically load all the class contain in this class... so all the class will load automatically without i have to load it by myself

i'll give a check to your url

thx

what you are trying to do is not an easy thing...

either you have to do it the way you said (with Class.forName) or you will need to write your own ClassLoader

To write your own ClassLoader, you will need to understand those links I gave you, and then you will need to digitally sign your applet, as applets are not normally allowed to define their own classloaders...
