  • MalformedParameterizedTypeException -- if any of the generic superinterfaces refer to a parameterized type that cannot be instantiated for any reason.

Example

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

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.reflect.*;

public class ClassDemo {

   public static void main(String []args) {         
          
     ClassDemo d = new ClassDemo();
     Class c = d.getClass();
          
     Type[] t = c.getGenericInterfaces();
     if(t.length != 0) {
        for(Type val : t) {
           System.out.println(val.toString());
        }
     }
     else {
        System.out.println("Interfaces are not implemented...");
     }
   }
} 

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Interfaces are not implemented...
