, Brian McCallister has posted a quick href="">Java
puzzle in his blog. We offer it today as something fun to consider
while the site is down. Commit to an answer before running the code to

A.class is not A.class, when each is loaded by a different class
loader. That's only the beginning of the trickiness unveiled by
Binildas Christudas in his article href="">Internals
of Java Class Loading, in which he shows how multiple class

the mechanism works and what can be done with it to suit their
needs. This can save time that would otherwise have been spent
debugging ClassNotFoundException, ClassCastException, etc."

compared to modern browsers, and hasn't improved in a while. I think
it would be great if Sun could make a full browser supporting all
common standards. Maybe JDIC is where this will happen, but JDIC
doesn't allow editing HTML in the browser window."

about some XML mark-up system for GridBagLayout ? Something that lets
