Hi all,

could you please review this patch for CTW library?

problem: we didn't run <clinit> for some classes, it might have lead to assert in native code during compilation.
fix: now we load and init a class inside try-catch block, so if there is any issue w/ class loading/initialization we will report an warning and skip this class.

as a part of this patch, I've also done some refactoring (mainly in *Entry classes) to make code more readable and remove duplication.
