If you are talking about dynamic class downloading then yes, it can be done, use RMI: http://java.sun.com/developer/onlineTraining/rmi/RMI.html

Didnt get the problem properly.
But it seems that you need to start a client.
For that you can make the application a web start application and clients can download it from the server.

For not restarting the server you will also need to implement your own classloader: http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/edu/j-dw-javaclass-i.html

client can be an applet based as well and you can do the applet servlet communication to run the game

It is not needed to implement own classloader. You can simply use the URLClassLoader class.

My game server include 2 actor: admin, gamer. All use Client 's GUI. Server hasn't GUI, it must start first.
My Application is  not applet,web, not RMI,it use socket and serversocket, TCP/IP. Client and Server exchange information use messages. Client's Admins can send  game_package from client's computer to server's computer. Server automatically identify client's package and (load)execute it.When Gamer's Client start, it must know there is a new game on server. When gamer chose a game, client automatically download class files for that game( for execute in client) and automatically execute it.  And i think i like "classloader"
