Thank you for your answer.

You are right. I want to store all the classes in ROM. But just putting
the ZIP-file into there
doesn't save me any RAM (which is extremely low on our system) as the
classes still have to
be loaded into RAM during execution. So it would help me if I could
execute them in ROM.

But the web of structures (yes you're right saying it's a web) seems to
a little complicated
to understand. But I'll try it.

In addition I should say that I am only working with Interpreter-mode.
So it seems a lot easier to port the whole thing.

Any kind of help is welcome.
