Class KaaribogaClassLoader


public class KaaribogaClassLoader

Helper class that creates a class from an array of bytes. This is used in the kaariboga input stream class. When a new agent arrives and the class source code is unknown the KaaribogaClassLoader sends a GET_CLASS message to the host that sent the agent to get the source code.
