      Description

      With Java 6, the calls to ClassLoader.loadClass() for array types will fail with a ClassNotFoundException. Sun "highly" recommends that

      classLoader.loadClass(className)

      be replaced with

      Class.forName(className, false, classLoader)

      The issue is described in...

      Basically, ClassLoader.loadClass() is fine for plain classes (which is most of the cases in Beehive that I looked at), not for arrays etc. However, based on the recommendation from Sun, I can go through the code and just make changes to use Class.forName()
