I have this piece of code:

URLClassLoader tmp = new URLClassLoader(new URL[] { getClassPath() });
private static URL getClassPath() {
    return new URL("/home/rudik/workspace/cl/target/classes/");
I got /home/rudik/workspace/cl/target/classes/ from Arrays.toString(((URLClassLoader) MyClass.class.getClassLoader()).getURLs()) execution.

When I execute it I get this exception:

java.net.MalformedURLException: no protocol: /home/rudik/workspace/cl/target/classes/

You don't pass a URL string to the URL constructor. In your case it should be
private static URL getClassPath() {
    return new URL("file:///home/rudik/workspace/cl/target/classes/");
