Yes it is indeed, basically I written a schedular program that runs
beanshell scripts at set times (the user can add the scripts in a
form). Things like running a backup, sending an email etc. These are
all done via existing classes in the webapp.

Just to note "thisBean.class" is a pseudonym for the real class (call
me paranoid!). It sits in c:/oc4j_extended/j2ee/home/myapp/WEB-INF/

My eval menthod sits in a precompiled class called schedular.class
(com/mycompany/aclass/schedular.class) that reads the code in from
the database and executes it.

I have got this code running JRUN in the past (including Beanshell)
so it does seem to be something to do with OC4J and the way it
resolves the classpath.

Sorry, my example should be thisBean.class

Yes indeed it is, I have my classes in the c:/oc4j_extended/j2ee/
home/myapp/WEB-INF/class/ folder of the webapp and the beanshell.jar
file in the
c:/oc4j_extended/j2ee/home/myapp/WEB-INF/lib folder of the webapp

I am able to reference these classes with normal compiled java code.
Many thanks for your help.
