Provides classes and interfaces for obtaining reflective
information about classes and objects. Reflection allows
programmatic access to information about the fields, methods and
constructors of loaded classes, and the use of reflected fields,
methods, and constructors to operate on their underlying
counterparts, within security restrictions.
AccessibleObject allows suppression of access checks if
ReflectPermission is available.
Array provides static methods to dynamically create and
Classes in this package, along with
accommodate applications such as debuggers, interpreters, object
inspectors, class browsers, and services such as Object
Serialization and JavaBeans that need access to either the public
members of a target object (based on its runtime class) or the
members declared by a given class.
||Represents an annotated element of the program currently running in this
||Stub implementation of java.lang.reflect.AnnotatedType.
||This interface represents an array type with a component type that is either
a parameterized type or a type variable.
||Common interface for language constructs that declare type parameters.
||Implementors of this interface dispatch methods invoked on proxy instances.
||Common interface providing access to reflective information on class members.
||This interface represents a parameterized type such as
||Type is the common superinterface for all types in the Java
|TypeVariable<D extends GenericDeclaration>
||This interface represents a type variables such as
'public interface Comparable<T>', the bounded
'public interface A<T extends Number>' or the multiple bounded
'public interface B<T extends Number & Cloneable>'.
||A pattern type, such as the upper bounded wildcard
? extends Closeable or the lower bounded wildcard
? super String.
||Stub implementation of AccessibleObject.
||Provides static methods to create and access arrays dynamically.
||Stub implementation of Constructor.
||Stub implementation of Executable.
||Stub implementation of Field.
||Stub implementation of Method.
||The Modifier class provides
static methods and
constants to decode class and member access modifiers.
Proxy defines methods for creating dynamic proxy classes and instances.
||Legacy security code; do not use.
||InvocationTargetException is a checked exception that wraps
an exception thrown by an invoked method or constructor.
||Thrown when a semantically malformed parameterized type is
encountered by a reflective method that needs to instantiate it.
||Thrown by a method invocation on a proxy instance if its invocation
invoke method throws a
checked exception (a
Throwable that is not assignable
is not assignable to any of the exception types declared in the
throws clause of the method that was invoked on the
proxy instance and dispatched to the invocation handler.
||Thrown when a syntactically malformed signature attribute is
encountered by a reflective method that needs to interpret the
generic signature information for a type, method or constructor.
