Syntax:

Parameter: This method does not accept any paramter.

Return Value: This method returns true if this Class is the Synthetic class. It returns false otherwise.

Below programs demonstrate the isSynthetic() method.



Example 1:




// Java program to demonstrate isSynthetic() method
  
public class Test {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws ClassNotFoundException
    {
  
        // returns the Class object for this class
        Class myClass = Class.forName("Test");
  
        System.out.println("Class represented by myClass: "
                           + myClass.toString());
  
        // Check if this class is an synthetic
        // using isSynthetic() method
        System.out.println("Is Test an synthetic: "
                           + myClass.isSynthetic());
    }
}
Output:
Class represented by myClass: class Test
Is Test an synthetic: false

Example 2:




// Java program to demonstrate isSynthetic() method
  
// declaring an Annotation Type
@interface A {
    // interface element definitions
}
  
public class Test {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws ClassNotFoundException
    {
  
        // returns the Class object for A
        Class myClass = A.class;
  
        // Check if myClass is an synthetic
        // using isSynthetic() method
        System.out.println("Is A an synthetic: "
                           + myClass.isSynthetic());
    }
}
Output:
Is A an synthetic: false
