I have a java.lang.reflection.Method passed to my method and I need to generate some text describing it. How do i find out if it's a static method?

Hi,

in class "java.lang.reflect.Method" there's a method getModifiers(). This method returns an int which you can in turn check with the static methods of class "java.lang.reflect.Modifier". The isStatic(int modifiers) will tell you wether a method is static or not
