public class GetInterfacesOfClass {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
        Class cl = sb.getClass();

        // It returns an array of interfaces represented
        // by the class StringBuilder
        Class[] interfaces = cl.getInterfaces();

        for (int i = 0; i < interfaces.length; ++i) {
            System.out.print("StringBuilder Interfaces: ");


StringBuilder Interfaces: interface
