here's a full list of what you can do with reflection from the reflection trail in the java tutorial: With the reflection API you can: -Determine the class of an object. -Get information about a class's modifiers, fields, methods, constructors, and superclasses. -Find out what constants and method declarations belong to an interface. -Create an instance of a class whose name is not known until runtime. -Get and set the value of an object's field, even if the field name is unknown to your program until runtime. -Invoke a method on an object, even if the method is not known until runtime. -Create a new array, whose size and component type are not known until runtime, and then modify the array's components.

Actually, I am sorely tempted to close this thread every time someone posts to it and it rises back to the top. The whole notion of a list of "interview questions" is absolutely counter to what we want to do here at the Ranch. JavaRanch wants you to learn Java -- not memorize answers to interview questions so you can get a job you're not qualified for. You should get a job because you really know the material based on experience -- not because you crammed for an interview.
