Yes classloader tricks are a no-go in OSGi/RCP.
Your binaries are not visible but I am guessing that your graps can come and
go. I think you should look at OSGi dynamic services or at Extension Points.
Basically, a graph bundle should register itself through an OSGi service or
an Extension point where it can be picked up by the VM plugin.
Again, do not fiddle with the classloader.

Algorithm.java (pastebin . com/ CdGXdPFw) which is compiled by an instance of

new instance is supposed to be created. All this takes place in a RCP
project, let's call it VM.
