TCCL in OSGi(Spring DM)

In order to better understand how TCCL works in OSGi i have done a sample POC.

I created 3 bundles.

Bundle A - calls Bundle B (imports Bundle B)

Bundle B -calls Bundle C (imports Bundle A)

Bundle C - instantiates class in Bundle A (No imports)

In normal cases Bundle C will fail to instantiate class in Bundle A, but this can be achieved using TCCL as follows.

ITest test=(ITest)Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader().loadClass("com.bundleA.external.ActionClass").newInstance();

Conclusion: Spring Dm sets TCCL to the bundle classloader where the thread initiated.

Now what if we want to instantiate class of bundle B in Bundle C , but the thread flow doesnt change. ?

This can be easily done by resetting the TCCL in bundle B's method as follows
