public Method getMethod(String name, Class parameterTypes) throws NoSuchMethodException, SecurityException
I understand thru the api that name refers to method name, but what is the purpose of parameterTypes??

I'm not sure, but I think that the Class parameters array is to distinguish between methods that might have the same name, but different arguments. I'm not sure if these have to be in the order declared in the method or not.

java. lang .reflection .Method .invoke()
reflection - invoking Methods by Name!!!
getMethod(); - reflection problem
