This is a request for more code samples. In particular I am having trouble finding code samples that let you find multiple implementations of a class, and instantiating them. What I am trying to do is populate a JTabbedPane with a bunch of Components that are found at runtime based on the jars in the classpath. The jars will have a META-INF/service folder with a file using the interface name (with package name). Right now I am easily able to load one class implementing this interface, but cannot seem to find the correct documentation for loading multiple class implementations of the interface. It seems this is one area that is missing.
Another thing that would be cool is a general way to search a given package (in all jars) for classes that implement or extend a specific interface/class. This would remove the annoyance of creating service folder and other things. If that isn't in the scope of commons-discovery then never mind. I still think it would be bad-ass.
