You know that you can extract constructors, methods, and variables from a Java class file. Generally, when you use
Field fields = c.getDeclaredFields( );
is initialized using
Class c = Class.forName(className);
and print the fields
array, you get all the elements declared in the class.
However, suppose you want to restrict the output to all fields other than those declared as private. In this case, you would use the following code, where the Modifier class is a part of the java.lang.reflect package:
ensures that the private variables are not printed.
The same can be used for methods as well.
