XRayInterface (formerly Picklock) is a convenient interface to Java reflection.

  • not depending on strings
  • but on interface conventions

This Readme contains technical infos to the project (e.g. Problems, Roadmap or the State of Work)

Information on Usage and Download can be found on XRayInterface.

XRayInterface vs. Picklock

XRayInterface follows the same idea as Picklock, yet there are some difference:

  • XRayInterface requires Java 8 (or higher)
  • XRayInterface may be bound by convention (method names) or annotations
  • XRayInterface is probably more performant because it relies on method handles (and not on the reflection api as Picklock)
  • the API is different
