Obtain Superclass and implemented Interface

Obtain Superclass and implemented Interface using class Object methods

Using getSuperclass() method of Class object, we can access the superclass of the class.

package reflect;
class Super {
class Child extends Super {
public class ClassObject {
     public static void main(String[] args) {
           Class superCls = Child.class.getSuperclass();
Output: class reflect.Super

Implemented Interfaces
A class can implement many interfaces. Therefore an array of Class is returned. Interfaces are also represented by Class objects in Java Reflection.

Class[] interfaces1 = MyClass.getInterfaces();
