Java Reflection provides the ability to inspect and modify the runtime behavior of applications. Using reflection we can inspect a class or an interface, get their constructors, methods and fields information at runtime even though class is not accessible at compile time. We can also use reflection to instantiate an object, invoke it’s methods, change field values. The classes of Reflection API are part of the package java.lang.reflect and the methods of Reflection API are parts of the package java.lang.Class.
