The getParameterCount() method of java.lang.reflect.Constructor class is used to return the number of parameters present on this constructor object. Every constructor contains a number of parameters starting from zero to many. This method is helpful to get those numbers of parameters. Syntax:
public int getParameterCount()
Parameters: This method accepts nothing. Return: This method returns the number of formal parameters for the executable this object represents. Below programs illustrate getParameterCount() method: Program 1:
// Java program to illustrate getParameterCount() method
  
import java.lang.reflect.Constructor;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // create a class object
        Class classObj = String.class;
  
        // get Constructor object
        // array from class object
        Constructor[] cons = classObj.getConstructors();
  
        // get count of parameter
        int params = cons[0].getParameterCount();
  
        // print parameter count
        System.out.println("No of Parameters: " + params);
    }
}

                    
Output:
No of Parameters: 3
Program 2:
// Java program to illustrate getParameterCount() method
  
import java.lang.reflect.Constructor;
import java.util.ArrayList;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // create a class object
        Class classObj = ArrayList.class;
  
        // get Constructor object
        // array from class object
        Constructor[] cons = classObj.getConstructors();
  
        for (int i = 0; i < cons.length; i++) {
            // get count of parameter
            int params = cons[i].getParameterCount();
  
            // print parameter count
            System.out.println(
                cons[i].toGenericString()
                + "-> parameter count = " + params);
        }
    }
}

                    
Output:
public java.util.ArrayList(java.util.Collection)-> parameter count = 1
public java.util.ArrayList()-> parameter count = 0
public java.util.ArrayList(int)-> parameter count = 1
