Java reflection get method parameter types

The java.lang.Class provides the methods to examine the runtime properties of the object including its members and type information. For every type of object, the JVM instantiates an immutable instance of java.lang.Class. Using reflection, we can get the metadata of a class at run time.

The getMethod() is used to get public method in java. It takes method name and parameter types of the method.

The getParameterTypes() method is used to method parameter types in java.


package com.codesjava;
public class TestClass {
	public void display(String message){

package com.codesjava;
import java.lang.reflect.Method;
import java.lang.reflect.Parameter;
public class ReflectionTest {
	public static void main(String args[]){
		try {
			Class c=Class.forName("com.codesjava.TestClass");  
			Method method = c.getMethod("display", String.class);
			Parameter[] parameters = method.getParameters();
			//We can also use getParameterTypes() to get parameter type list
			for(int i=0; i<parameters.length; i++){
				System.out.println("Parameter name: " + parameters[i].getName());
				System.out.println("Parameter Type: " + parameters[i].getType());
		} catch (Exception e) {


Parameter name: arg0
Parameter Type: class java.lang.String
