Classpath for java stored procedure

Because Java stored procedures share the same classpath, it appears necessary to have the ability to specify the classpath by java stored procedure, for development customer needs, and testing.

Jar files are registered by SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR stored procedure.

For development purpose, same class name can exist in different jar files, and in different version, different methods.
The way to avoid use of incorrect class will be to tune classpath.
It would be great to have a way to specify classpath for only one java stored procedure.

Use Case:

Implement classpath setting by java stored procedure will help developpement and testing in complexe environement, for example cobol calling java sored procedure.

    IBM does not intend to provide a solution to this request at this time, so it is being closed.

    While we understand the benefit of the proposed enhancement, this request is a low priority ease of use idea (with a low number of votes). The database team has many higher priority requests, so we do not anticipate implementing this enhancement anytime soon.
