Class loader issues in deploying ear

in Webpshere6.1 once you deployed the ear you need to set Class loader setting for the enterprise application.

when you click Enterprise Applications in the left menu you will find the multiple applications deployed in that server.
i clicked one of the enterprise application(.ear) i could see one option(Class loading and update detection ) ;
if i click this option "Class loading and update detection" i will see this menu(Enterprise Applications > exear > Class loader);
in this i will see (Class Loader General Properties);in this you have several options with radio buttons;
if i select "Class loader order Classes loaded with parent class loader first" and "WAR class loader policy Class loader for each WAR file in application
" what exactly happen internally?
