Redundant permission checks when creating ClassLoaders

    Details

      Description

      The subclasses of ClassLoader (SecureClassLoader, URLClassLoader) perform a redundant "createClassLoader" permission check:

          protected SecureClassLoader() {
              super();
              // this is to make the stack depth consistent with 1.1
              SecurityManager security = System.getSecurityManager();
              if (security != null) {
                  security.checkCreateClassLoader();
              }
              initialized = true;
          }

      ClassLoader() already performs the check, so SecureClassLoader does 1 xtra check, and URLClassLoader does 2.
