If we create a new method in an anonymous inner class then how will we invoke that method as we can't use the instance of the super class.

Please explain with an example.

Hi, Indra

See the following code



Output is : Annonymous

But here method doIt() overrided in annonymous sub class of AnnonymousAccess class.
At line number 8 we used reference of super class to access the overrided method of annonymous inner class.

Let see what other say about your query.

If you can't use the super class (or an interface) to call the method, then your only option is to use reflection, as the definition of the anonymous class will be out of scope.

Here's a quick modification of the previous example, that uses refection instead...

Anyone pursuing SCJP can relax as Reflection is not on the SCJP objectives
