The approach helps to increase the performance of the LoginContext.login() method significantly, especially in a multi-threading environment. Service Loader is used for polling on Service Provider classes, without instantiating LoginModules object if Service Provider name doesn't match record in .config file. The set of service providers is cached for each Context Loader separately.

Thanks for the review, I'll update the code according to your notices.

Sorry, I didn't catch the point with the test.
Why the `lc.login();`  succeed if SecondLoginModule is compiled or not?

maybe you mean the test Loader.java itself? I have rolled back changes in Loader.java and FirstLoginModule.java, added directives that you proposed to Loader.java, but the test fails.
