Class class getModifiers() method

  • getModifiers() method is available in java.lang package.
  • getModifiers() method is used to return the modifiers for this class or interfaces and the modifiers consist of JVM constants for the modifiers public, private, protected, final, static, abstract and interface and these modifiers should be decoded by the method getModifier() of Modifier class.

import java.lang.reflect.*;

public class GetModifiersOfClass {

        Thread th = new Thread();

        // Get Class object of Thread
        Class cl = th.getClass();

        // It return the modifier of the class Thread
        int modifiers = cl.getModifiers();

        // Display Modifier in integer form 
        System.out.println("Before Conversion = " + modifiers);

        // Convert Modifer from int to String by using toString()
        String modifier = Modifier.toString(modifiers);

        System.out.print("After Conversion = " + modifier);
