[PERF] Remote EJB lookups are slow due to repeated class loading

      Performance tests of remote lookups of EJBs are lagging.

      One key contributor to this is the excessive time spent in looking up classes in the class loader; the JDKBridge class pends a lot of time loading classes (which is in turn quite expensive because the lower classes throw a lot of ClassNotFoundExceptions along the way). We need to cache the classes better to avoid these lookups.

      In fact, I see that in the JDKBridge class there already is a class cache, but it has been disabled because it doesn't work correctly between applications. We must fix that; when I enabled it for our throughput test of EJB lookups, performance improved by 25%.
