Class Class<T>

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, AnnotatedElement, GenericDeclaration, Type


    public final class Class<T>
    extends Object
    implements Serializable, AnnotatedElement, GenericDeclaration, Type
    The in-memory representation of a Java class. This representation serves as the starting point for querying class-related information, a process usually called "reflection". There are basically three types of Class instances: those representing real classes and interfaces, those representing primitive types, and those representing array classes.

    Class instances representing object types (classes or interfaces)

    These represent an ordinary class or interface as found in the class hierarchy. The name associated with these Class instances is simply the fully qualified class name of the class or interface that it represents. In addition to this human-readable name, each class is also associated by a so-called signature, which is the letter "L", followed by the class name and a semicolon (";"). The signature is what the runtime system uses internally for identifying the class (for example in a DEX file).

    Classes representing primitive types

    These represent the standard Java primitive types and hence share their names (for example "int" for the int primitive type). Although it is not possible to create new instances based on these Class instances, they are still useful for providing reflection information, and as the component type of array classes. There is one Class instance for each primitive type, and their signatures are:

    • B representing the byte primitive type
    • S representing the short primitive type
    • I representing the int primitive type
    • J representing the long primitive type
    • F representing the float primitive type
    • D representing the double primitive type
    • C representing the char primitive type
    • Z representing the boolean primitive type
    • V representing void function return values

    Classes representing array classes

    These represent the classes of Java arrays. There is one such Class instance per combination of array leaf component type and arity (number of dimensions). In this case, the name associated with the Class consists of one or more left square brackets (one per dimension in the array) followed by the signature of the class representing the leaf component type, which can be either an object type or a primitive type. The signature of a Class representing an array type is the same as its name. Examples of array class signatures are:

    • [I representing the int[] type
    • [Ljava/lang/String; representing the String[] type
    • [[[C representing the char[][][] type (three dimensions!)

        Returns a Class object which represents the class with the specified name. The name should be the name of a class as described in the class definition; however, Classes representing primitive types can not be found using this method.

        If the class has not been loaded so far, it is being loaded and linked first. This is done through either the class loader of the calling class or one of its parent class loaders. The class is also being initialized, which means that a possible static initializer block is executed.

        Parameters:
        className - the name of the non-primitive-type class to find.
        Returns:
        the named Class instance.
        Throws:
        ClassNotFoundException - if the requested class can not be found.
        LinkageError - if an error occurs during linkage
        ExceptionInInitializerError - if an exception occurs during static initialization of a class.

        Returns a read-only stream for the contents of the resource specified by resName. The mapping between the resource name and the stream is managed by the class' class loader.
        Parameters:
        resName - the name of the resource.
        Returns:
        a stream for the requested resource or null if no resource with the specified name can be found.

      • getSigners

        public Object[] getSigners()
        Returns null. (On Android, a ClassLoader can load classes from multiple dex files. All classes from any given dex file will have the same signers, but different dex files may have different signers. This does not fit well with the original ClassLoader-based model of getSigners.)
        Returns:
        null.
      • getSuperclass

        public Class<? super T> getSuperclass()
        Returns the Class object which represents the superclass of the class represented by this Class. If this Class represents the Object class, a primitive type, an interface or void then the method returns null. If this Class represents an array class then the Object class is returned.
        Returns:
        the superclass of the class represented by this Class.
      • getTypeParameters

        public TypeVariable<Class<T>>[] getTypeParameters()
        Returns an array containing TypeVariable objects for type variables declared by the generic class represented by this Class. Returns an empty array if the class is not generic.
        Specified by:
        getTypeParameters in interface GenericDeclaration
        Returns:
        an array with the type variables of the class represented by this class.
      • isAnnotation

        public boolean isAnnotation()
        Indicates whether this Class represents an annotation class.

      • isAssignableFrom

        public boolean isAssignableFrom(Class<?> cls)
        Indicates whether the specified class type can be converted to the class represented by this Class. Conversion may be done via an identity conversion or a widening reference conversion (if either the receiver or the argument represent primitive types, only the identity conversion applies).
        Parameters:
        cls - the class to check.
        Returns:
        true if cls can be converted to the class represented by this Class; false otherwise.

        true if the class represented by this Class is an enum; false otherwise.
      • isInstance

        public boolean isInstance(Object object)
        Indicates whether the specified object can be cast to the class represented by this Class. This is the runtime version of the instanceof operator.
        Parameters:
        object - the object to check.
        Returns:
        true if object can be cast to the type represented by this Class; false if object is null or cannot be cast.

        Returns:
        true if this Class represents an interface; false otherwise.
      • isLocalClass

        public boolean isLocalClass()
        Indicates whether the class represented by this Class is defined locally.
        Returns:
        true if the class represented by this Class is defined locally; false otherwise.
      • isMemberClass

        public boolean isMemberClass()
        Indicates whether the class represented by this Class is a member class.
        Returns:
        true if the class represented by this Class is a member class; false otherwise.
      • isPrimitive

        public boolean isPrimitive()
        Indicates whether this Class represents a primitive type.
        Returns:
        true if this Class represents a primitive type; false otherwise.
      • isSynthetic

        public boolean isSynthetic()
        Indicates whether this Class represents a synthetic type.
        Returns:
        true if this Class represents a synthetic type; false otherwise.
      • newInstance

        public T newInstance()
                      throws InstantiationException,
                             IllegalAccessException
        Returns a new instance of the class represented by this Class, created by invoking the default (that is, zero-argument) constructor. If there is no such constructor, or if the creation fails (either because of a lack of available memory or because an exception is thrown by the constructor), an InstantiationException is thrown. If the default constructor exists but is not accessible from the context where this method is invoked, an IllegalAccessException is thrown.
        Returns:
        a new instance of the class represented by this Class.
        Throws:
        IllegalAccessException - if the default constructor is not visible.
        InstantiationException - if the instance can not be created.
      • toString

        public String toString()
        Description copied from class: Object
        Returns a string containing a concise, human-readable description of this object. Subclasses are encouraged to override this method and provide an implementation that takes into account the object's type and data. The default implementation is equivalent to the following expression:
           getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())

        See Writing a useful toString method if you intend implementing your own toString method.

        Overrides:
        toString in class Object
        Returns:
        a printable representation of this object.
      • getPackage

        public Package getPackage()
        Returns the Package of which the class represented by this Class is a member. Returns null if no Package object was created by the class loader of the class.
        Returns:
        Package the Package of which this Class is a member or null.
      • desiredAssertionStatus

        public boolean desiredAssertionStatus()
        Returns the assertion status for the class represented by this Class. Assertion is enabled / disabled based on the class loader, package or class default at runtime.
        Returns:
        the assertion status for the class represented by this Class.
      • asSubclass

        public <U> Class<? extends U> asSubclass(Class<U> clazz)
        Casts this Class to represent a subclass of the specified class. If successful, this Class is returned; otherwise a ClassCastException is thrown.
        Parameters:
        clazz - the required type.
        Returns:
        this Class cast as a subclass of the given type.
        Throws:
        ClassCastException - if this Class cannot be cast to the specified type.
      • cast

        public T cast(Object obj)
        Casts the specified object to the type represented by this Class. If the object is null then the result is also null.
        Parameters:
        obj - the object to cast.
