Get the list of all the declared methods in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The list of all the declared methods can be obtained using the java.lang.Class.getDeclaredMethods() method. This method returns an array that contains all the Method objects with public, private, protected and default access. However, the inherited methods are not included.

Also, the getDeclaredMethods() method returns a zero-length array if the class or interface has no methods or if a primitive type, array class or void is represented in the Class object.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

Example

 Live Demo

import java.lang.reflect.Method;
public class Main {
   public static void main(String[] argv) throws Exception {
      Class c = java.lang.String.class;
      Method[] methods = c.getDeclaredMethods();
      for(int i = 0; i < methods.length; i++) {
         System.out.println("The method is: " + methods[i].toString());
      }
   }
}
