    Default Class Loader question

    We know that Bootstrap loader loads all java related classes and system loader loads other user classes. Static classes get loaded when JVM starts. So all other non static classes get loaded in to JVM when they are referenced by other class? If not how they are loaded?

    Yes, they are in bytecodes for JVM and as soon as they are referenced, JVM loads them and make use of them.
    If anyone else has the complete knowledge of cycle, kindly post it here. I told what i knew and in my knowledge.

    Hi, I think reading JVM/Java lang spec is the right way to find the correct answer.
