So.. I hear a lot about classloaders.. never was really sure about them. What they are and what they would be used for. And after knowing this.. maybe how to implement them. Some insight would be great for those of you who use them all the time.

You should read the Java Virtual Machine Specification, specifically Section 2.17 for a detailed explanation.

You could also give it a look at this IBM Developer Works article named
Understanding the Java ClassLoader

That will certainly help you.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
