ContextClassLoader PluginClassLoader AccessControlException

I have a plugin that uses an ExecutorService to spawn new threads that do some dynamic class loading.


I learned that PluginClassLoader is used to initially load all my plugin classes (naturally).  However, the context ClassLoader of the threads spawned by the ExecutorService is some AppClassLoader, which fails when trying to load my plugin''s classes.


I tried setting the context ClassLoader of the new threads to be the PluginClassLoader, but I get "  access denied (java.lang.RuntimePermission setContextClassLoader)".


Any advice?
