Most deal with the Java 1.1 API but should give you an understanding of the topic. The last one mentions some 1.2/1.3 enhancements. They mention a website for further information but the site is not(does not appear to be)up yet. Anyhow, Joshua Bloch is "visiting" the Ranch this week and he (or someone else) will come along and tell you of other resources. regards, Jyotsna

Sergei, Hi. Sun has a refection tutorial. I haven't read it, but I believe it's fine. My book encourages you to use reflection only in a limited form that avoids most of its disadvantages (Item 35, "Prefer interfaces to reflection"). Briefly, I believe that reflection should generally be used only to instantiate objects, which can then be accessed via the interface(s) they implement. The advantages of this approach are: compile-time type safety, cleanliness, and performance. Sometimes you need the full power of reflective access, but often you don't.
