Java Language Instantiating sun.misc.Unsafe via bootclasspath


public class UnsafeLoader {
    public static Unsafe loadUnsafe() {
        return Unsafe.getUnsafe();

While this example will compile, it is likely to fail at runtime unless the Unsafe class was loaded with the primary classloader. To ensure that happens the JVM should be loaded with the appropriate arguments, like:

java -Xbootclasspath:$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/rt.jar:./UnsafeLoader.jar

The class can then use UnsafeLoader.loadUnsafe().
