In this example we shall explain with a simple example to get the methods of a class using the reflection and get the return type. You can list the public and private methods of an object using the following steps: Get the Class instance of the class which you want to list the methods. In […]

Get Constructors using Reflection

java-thumbnail

This example shows how to get the constructors in a class and invoke it. Note that java.lang.reflect.Constructor defines a method newInstance() which is used for creating instance for an object. Before that you have to get the list of constructors in a class. We have two methods defined in the Class class. If we use […]

This example highlights the way how to invoke a method using the reflection API. As we are aware that we can dynamically invoke a method in another class by using the reflection classes. Note that using reflection is more expensive in terms of performance. This programming practice is used only in the certain requirements where […]
