Description copied from class: ClassLoader
Loads the class with the specified name. The default implementation of this method searches for classes in the following order:

  1. Call ClassLoader.findLoadedClass(String) to check if the class has already been loaded.

  2. Call the loadClass method on the parent class loader. If the parent is null the class loader built-in to the virtual machine is used, instead.

  3. Call the ClassLoader.findClass(String) method to find the class.

If the class was found using the above steps, and the resolve flag is true, this method will then call the ClassLoader.resolveClass(Class) method on the resulting class object.

From the Java 2 SDK, v1.2, subclasses of ClassLoader are encouraged to override ClassLoader.findClass(String), rather than this method.
