How does GATK find a Walker by name ? ( eclipse plugin)

lindenblindenb FranceMember ✭✭

I'm playing with the GATK jar and I'm trying to use it as an eclipse plugin: that is to say that the GenomeAnalysisTK.jar is itself packaged/bundled in a parent jar. Could this affect the way GATK is finding the walker by name ?

args.toString() is "[-T, CombineVariants, -R, /home/lindenb/src/gatk-ui/testdata/ref.fa, -genotypeMergeOptions, UNIQUIFY, -o, /home/lindenb/jeter.vcf, --variant, /home/lindenb/src/gatk-ui/testdata/S3.vcf.gz, --variant, /home/lindenb/src/gatk-ui/testdata/S4.vcf.gz, --variant, /home/lindenb/src/gatk-ui/testdata/S1.vcf.gz, --variant, /home/lindenb/src/gatk-ui/testdata/S2.vcf.gz]"

(...)

if yes, is there a way to tell change classLoader ?
