      java.lang.String getClassName()
      Return the name of the underlying class.
      java.lang.String getEnclosingClassName()

      • getClassName

        java.lang.String getClassName()
        Return the name of the underlying class.
      • isInterface

        boolean isInterface()

      • isAbstract

        boolean isAbstract()
        Return whether the underlying class is marked as abstract.
      • isConcrete

        boolean isConcrete()
        Return whether the underlying class represents a concrete class, i.e. neither an interface nor an abstract class.
      • isFinal

        boolean isFinal()
        Return whether the underlying class is marked as 'final'.
      • isIndependent

        boolean isIndependent()
        Determine whether the underlying class is independent, i.e. whether it is a top-level class or a nested class (static inner class) that can be constructed independently from an enclosing class.
      • hasEnclosingClass

        boolean hasEnclosingClass()
        Return whether the underlying class is declared within an enclosing class (i.e. the underlying class is an inner/nested class or a local class within a method).

        If this method returns false, then the underlying class is a top-level class.

      • getEnclosingClassName

        @Nullable
        java.lang.String getEnclosingClassName()
        Return the name of the enclosing class of the underlying class, or null if the underlying class is a top-level class.
      • hasSuperClass

        boolean hasSuperClass()
        Return whether the underlying class has a super class.
      • getSuperClassName

        @Nullable
        java.lang.String getSuperClassName()
        Return the name of the super class of the underlying class, or null if there is no super class defined.
      • getInterfaceNames

        java.lang.String[] getInterfaceNames()
        Return the names of all interfaces that the underlying class implements, or an empty array if there are none.
      • getMemberClassNames

        java.lang.String[] getMemberClassNames()
        Return the names of all classes declared as members of the class represented by this ClassMetadata object. This includes public, protected, default (package) access, and private classes and interfaces declared by the class, but excludes inherited classes and interfaces. An empty array is returned if no member classes or interfaces exist.
