Does someone know what purpose's this code using for?

        javax.swing.UIManager.getLookAndFeelDefaults().put("ClassLoader", getClass().getClassLoader());


My application using JDesktopPane to build MDI environments, if i put that code begin of my application (before show scrollpane app) my application worked without any error, but my application using javahelp to support help to user, when invoke help it throws error below

UIDefaults.getUI() failed: no ComponentUI class for: javax.help.JHelpContentViewer[,0,0,0x0,invalid,alignmentX=0.0,alignmentY=0.0,border=,flags=0,maximumSize=,minimumSize=,preferredSize=]
java.lang.Error

if i clear line javax.swing.UIManager.getLookAndFeelDefaults().put("ClassLoader", getClass().getClassLoader()); out of my application, javahelp working correct but if i create any JInternalFrame it show error like this :

UIDefaults.getUI() failed: no ComponentUI class for: javax.swing.JInternalFrame$JDesktopIcon[,0,0,0x0,invalid,hidden,alignmentX=0.0,alignmentY=0.0,border=,flags=0,maximumSize=,minimumSize=,preferredSize=]
java.lang.Error

Please show me what purpose of line : javax.swing.UIManager.getLookAndFeelDefaults().put("ClassLoader", getClass().getClassLoader());

k6t,
> javax.swing.UIManager.getLookAndFeelDefaults().put("ClassLoader",
> getClass().getClassLoader());

This line puts in the UIDefaults (which is a hashtable and you get it when you do javax.swing.UIManager.getLookAndFeelDefaults()) the classloader that renders the component you are using.

For a possible solution have a look here: http://javootoo.l2fprod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?topic=237&forum=1&10

You mainly need to try the last suggestion

"I fixed that problem in the main-method:


public static void main(String[] args){

File file = new File("/*the dir of the skinlf.jar*/");
URL url = file.toURL();
UrlClassLoader loader = new UrlClassLoader(new URL[]{url});
Thread.currentThread().setContextClassLoader(loader);
}"
