Ok. here is my problem

Please note the commented code snippet. I would like to dynamically load a class and pass it as an argument to the displayDocument() method.


is not valid, as they are incompatible conditional operand types. How do I get around this?

P.S: Interestingly, c.getInterfaces() returns an empty array (I expected it to return DocumentProviderIntf).

You only have the Class. You need to create an instance of the class.
