#2074 closed enhancement (fixed)

Support for plug-ins to save custom information in the static cache

The static cache can store any serializable object by calling the StaticCache.store() method. A plug-in may call this method directly (or indirectly by the Response.setPause() method; see #2072) without any problem.

However, when trying to read the information again the result is an exception:

java.io.IOException: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: net.sf.basedb.relax.plugins.ReleaseImporterPlugin$Stats

This happens because the data to load belongs to a plug-in and the static cache has no explicit knowledge of which correct class loader to use for finding the class definition.

The StaticCache API should be extended with read/load methods that also take a ClassLoader parameter.

(In [7324]) Fixes #2074: Support for plug-ins to save custom information in the static cache

The functionality could be implemented by subclassing the ObjectInputStream and implementing the resolveClass() method.
