Hi All
Can some one please tell me the difference between introspection and reflection.
What my understanding is that "introspection" is some API built on the top of reflection API.
But when do we really use Introspection over reflection class? IS introspection only used along with java beans..
If someone can provide me the code also to distinguish the two, then it will be very helpful.
Thanks
Goyal
