Hi all, is there any way to return a method's origin?

Besides typing in toCharArray in a Google search box; is there a way to display where a method is located, using Java?

Like a getClass() ?

Edit: Just using toCharArray as an example, I don't want to know that method specifically. I know it is in java.lang.String.

The JavaDoc is generally good at telling you the methods of a class -- and what methods are part of super classes, etc....
