I am creating a java project programmatically and I am wondering if there is an "easy" way to extend the tooling to also allow URLs as build path entries for a java project (i.e. class lookup from an http service)? Has someone done this? Currently it seems I can only use jars or folders as build path entries. I.e. I want the java project's java compiler to be able to resolve class references from an URL, instead of from folders or jars in the file system.

Scenario:
The java projects my plugin is creating, is dependant of a runtime system, running with a certain classpath. That runtime system has a http service for providing class objects from it class path. I want my java project's compiler to utilize that as a build path entry if possible.

(The runtime is running locally so the communication should be fast enough)
