Description

The java.lang.Class.getDeclaringClass() method returns the Class object representing the class in which it was declared, if the class or interface represented by this Class object is a member of another class.

This method returns null if this class or interface is not a member of any other class. If this Class object represents an array class, a primitive type, or void,then this method returns null.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.lang.Class.getDeclaringClass() method

public Class<?> getDeclaringClass()

Parameters

  • NA

Return Value

This method returns the declaring class for this class.

Exception

  • NA

Example

The following example shows the usage of java.lang.Class.getDeclaringClass() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.reflect.*;

public class ClassDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

     // class object associated with class Long
     Class cls = Long.class;

     Method[] m = cls.getMethods();
     for(int i = 0; i < m.length; i++) {
        // returns te declaring class
        Class dec = m[i].getDeclaringClass();
        // displays all methods
        System.out.println("Method = " + m[i].toString());
        System.out.println(" Declaring class: " + dec.toString());
     }
   }
}
