The new Java Plug-In supports disabling of the "class loader cache" via a new parameter to the applet, object and embed tags:

  <PARAM name="classloader_cache" value="false">

This functionality needs to be documented publicly. Note that this capability does not imply the same level of specification as a public API; it is more of an implementation detail, similar to "codebase_lookup", which is documented at http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/technotes/guides/plugin/developer_guide/special_attributes.html .

Engineering specification for feature:


EVALUATION This parameter has been documented in the release notes for the new Java Plug-In at https://jdk6.dev.java.net/plugin2/ . Marking this bug as fixed in build 13. Note that there were no code changes (or even any putbacks) associated with this bug ID; no verification is necessary.
