This should work as before (ignoring the issue that 
Object.class.getClassLoader() will return null :-))

However, as I read it, the original question involves a tool running on 
JDK 7 trying to access the .class files in a JDK 9 image. There isn't 
any supported way to do that, the tool needs to be on a minimum of JDK 8 
as the jrtfs provider is compiled to 8.
