When used in a server context, like Tomcat, for instance, retrieving objects from the DiskStore can throw errors. This is due to way in which objects get resolved by the class loader - in Tomcat, for instance, each webapp has its own classloader. If you put local objects loaded by the webapp’s class loader into the disk cache, ehcache throws an error on retrieval.

A simple fix is to redefine the resolveClass method of ObjectInputStream to get the contextClassLoader of the currentThread. A patch file is included for DiskStore.java that makes this change, and fixes this issue. (Hopefully the patch works - if not, the code changes are very small)
