import java.lang.reflect.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    // create a String Field
    protected String string;
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws NoSuchFieldException,
               SecurityException
    {
  
        // get Field class object
        Field field
            = GFG.class
                  .getDeclaredField("string");
  
        // get Modifier Integer value
        int mod = field.getModifiers();
  
        // check Modifier is protected or not
        boolean result = Modifier.isProtected(mod);
  
        System.out.println("Mod integer value "
                           + mod + " is protected : "
                           + result);
    }
}
Output:
Mod integer value 4 is protected : true

Program 2:




// Java program to illustrate isProtected()
  
import java.lang.reflect.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    // create an int Field
    public int numbers;
  
    public static void main(String[] args)

        // get Modifier Integer value
        int mod = field.getModifiers();
  
        // check Modifier is protected or not
        boolean result
            = Modifier.isProtected(mod);
  
        System.out.println("Mod integer value "
