It sounds like what you really need to do is store the MyClass object somewhere that it's easily accessed. I suggest that you just subclass SimpleEvolutionState (or whatever) like this:
MyEvolutionState extends SimpleEvolutionState
public MyClass myobj;
Now you just create a MyEvolutionState instead of a SimpleEvolutionState, stick your myobj in it, and then evolve it. In your Problem you're handed the EvolutionState. Cast it to a MyEvolutionState and extract myobj.
If you don't want to extend the EvolutionState, you could extend, say, Finisher, which isn't used by anyone.
