;; (#<File /foo/test> #<File /foo/src> ...)

The classpath function returns a sequence of objects representing all JAR files and directories on the classpath. It defaults to using the classpath of Clojure's base ClassLoader.

classpath also takes a ClassLoader as an optional argument.

Alternatively, the system-classpath function returns a sequence of objects parsed from the java.class.path Java system property.

If you are using an environment which provides its own ClassLoader implementation, such as a Java application server, you can extend the protocol URLClasspath to support it. Refer to the source for details.

Starting with version 0.3.0, the classpath function will fall back to the java.class.path system property if the parent ClassLoader is not an instance of URLClassLoader, which is true for Java 9 and later.
