java.lang.reflect.ReflectPermission Class in Java

  • Last Updated : 03 Mar, 2021

ReflectPermission class extends BasicPermission class. It is a “named” permission i.e it contains a name but no action. It may implement actions on top of BasicPermission, if desired. It is used to get information about the behaviour of Constructors.

ReflectPermission(String name)It is used to create a ReflectPermission with the specified name.
ReflectPermission(String name, String action)It is used to create a ReflectPermission with the specified name and action.

Methods inherited from class

equals(Object obj)It checks whether the two BasicPermission objects are equal or not.
getActions()It returns the actions in String format, which is currently an empty string as there is no action for ReflectPermission.
hashCode()It returns the hash code value for this object.
implies(Permission permission)It checks whether the given permission is implied by this object or not.
newPermissionCollection()It returns a new PermissionCollection object.

Below is the example/use of a given class:


// Use of java.lang.reflect.ReflectPermission Class in Java
import java.lang.reflect.ReflectPermission;
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        if (canAccessPrivateMethods()) {
            System.out.println("Permission granted");
        else {
            System.out.println("Permission not granted");
    static boolean canAccessPrivateMethods()
        try {
            SecurityManager securityManager
                = System.getSecurityManager();
            if (null != securityManager) {
                    new ReflectPermission(
        catch (SecurityException e) {
            return false;
