Example:

In the below example, the java.lang.Class.isInterface() method is used to check if the given class object represents an interface type or not.

import java.lang.*;

public class MyClass {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    //get a class object for this class
    MyClass x = new MyClass();
    Class xcls = x.getClass();

    //get a class object for Test
    Class ycls = Test.class;

    //check if x represents an interface
    Boolean retval1 = xcls.isInterface();
    System.out.println("Is this class an interface?: " + retval1);

    //check if x represents an interface
    Boolean retval2 = ycls.isInterface();
    System.out.println("Is Test an interface?: " + retval2);
  }
}

@interface Test {
  //code block
}

The output of the above code will be:

Is this class an interface?: false
Is Test an interface?: true
