public static Object newProxyInstance(ClassLoader loader, Class<?>[] interfaces,
   InvocationHandler h)
      throws IllegalArgumentException

Parameters

  • loader − the class loader to define the proxy class.

  • interfaces − the list of interfaces for the proxy class to implement.

  • h − the invocation handler to dispatch method invocations to.

Returns

A proxy instance with the specified invocation handler of a proxy class that is defined by the specified class loader and that implements the specified interfaces.

  • NullPointerException − if the interfaces array argument or any of its elements are null, or if the invocation handler, h, is null.

Example

The following example shows the usage of java.lang.reflect.Proxy.newProxyInstance(ClassLoader loader, Class<?>[] interfaces, InvocationHandler h) method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.reflect.InvocationHandler;
import java.lang.reflect.Method;
import java.lang.reflect.Proxy;

public class ProxyDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) throws IllegalArgumentException {
      InvocationHandler handler = new SampleInvocationHandler() ;
      SampleInterface proxy = (SampleInterface) Proxy.newProxyInstance(
         SampleInterface.class.getClassLoader(),
         new Class[] { SampleInterface.class },
         handler);
      Class invocationHandler = Proxy.getInvocationHandler(proxy).getClass();

      System.out.println(invocationHandler.getName());
   }
}

class SampleInvocationHandler implements InvocationHandler {

   @Override
   public Object invoke(Object proxy, Method method, Object[] args)
      throws Throwable {
      System.out.println("Welcome to TutorialsPoint");   
      return null;
   }
}

interface SampleInterface {
   void showMessage();
}

class SampleClass implements SampleInterface {
   public void showMessage(){
      System.out.println("Hello World");   
   }
}

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