When attempting to launch the standalone applets, like Batchloader or Archiver, it fails to start.

Problem is only with standalone applications.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Go to the file system and attempt to launch Batchloader: (Middleware)/user_projects/domains/(base_domain)/ucm/cs/bin/BatchLoader.exe
2. The ClassCastException error will come up.

Due to this issue, users cannot use the standalone batchloader to import content into the systems.
