An application can dynamically reference types or resources that are not contained in the libraries that are automatically loaded when the application is loaded. In a Java* environment these references would be resolved by searching the classpath. In the Microsoft .NET environment there is no equivalent to the Java classpath. This article describes a technique for the application loader to load required libraries prior to their use.
