OK, I know one can load a class during runtime using a ClassLoader but how is this done with a data jar? In particular I am loading a jar that contains JavaHelp which I want to put into the classpath for just long enough to run a JUnit test to check the links. I've been instructed to run the test using an appropriate JavaHelp object, which is why this is necesary.

A ClassLoader has methods getResource and getResourceAsStream; you should be able to use those methods to load whatever non-class resources you need to.
