      Description

      In some (very rare) cases it is helpful to dynamically insert classes into a plugins classpath.

      For example the BouncyCastle plugin currently does so that it can still work in a FIPS enabled JVM this but uses restricted APIs.

      Other randomly made up use cases would be some code that had platform specific variants (but used the same packaged (e.g. multiple jars where published with 2 different qualifiers).
