HIii guys,

Can anyone tell me what is the command to view the methods of an inbuilt java class
for example,methods in Integer class through command prompt.
It would be very helpful to me.

"javap java.lang.Integer" from the command prompt. BTW, you should use the API as it tells you all the details (what's & what's not etc..) needed by a programmer.

I don't know of any command-line interface to the JavaDocs that displays the full info, but http://groovy.codehaus.org/command+line+groovy+doc+or+methods+lookup might be a start.
