ClassUtils could be a non-static class that wraps a Class<?> (since every method takes a "Class<?> type" parameter), perhaps ParamField, and resides in the ij-plugin project.

We added loadClass, hasClass and getLocation methods that take an optional ClassLoader parameter. This might be a better approach (functional programming) since we'd like to avoid the cost of instantiating a class for what is basically always just one call anyway.

In the same spirit, there is now a getField(Class, String) method in addition to the getField(String, String) method. That way, the caller can obtain the class from whatever appropriate class loader, and again, we do not need to make ClassUtils stateful.

This should be good enough.
