	public void showShapeName(){
		System.out.println("Default shape is circle.");
	}
}

Rectangle.java

package com.codesjava;
 
public class Rectangle extends ShapeBase{
	private int defaultLength = 10;
	private int defaultWidth = 5;
 
	public void drawShape(String color) {
		System.out.println("Rectangle create with following properties: ");
		System.out.println("Length: " + defaultLength);
		System.out.println("Width: " + defaultWidth);
	}
 
}

ReflectionTest.java

package com.codesjava;
 
public class ReflectionTest {
	public static void main(String args[]){
		try {
			Class c=Class.forName("com.codesjava.Rectangle"); 
			c = c.getSuperclass();
			System.out.println(c.getName());
		} catch (Exception e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		}  
	}
