You should be OK

            String className = "java.lang.String";
            Class cc = Class.forName(className);
            Field[] ff = cc.getDeclaredFields();

            for (int i = 0; i < ff.length; i++) {

                  Class type = ff[i].getType();

                  if (type.isPrimitive() == false) {
                        //Class treeset = Class.forName(ff[i]);
                        System.out.println("Found " + type);
                  }
            }

Class.forName() expects a String, and not a Field instance.
and you don't need to call Class.forName() as you alreay have the Class instance 'type'.

I think you want to do:

TreeSet trList = new TreeSet () ;
Class cc = Class.forName ( className ) ;
Field[] ff = cc.getDeclaredFields () ;

for ( int i = 0 ; i < ff.length ; i ++)
{
  Class type = ff[i].getType () ;

  if ( type.isPrimitive () == false )
    trList.add ( ff[i] ) ; // end if

} // end for

You can then display them using:

Iterator itTreeItems = trList.iterator () ;

while ( itTreeItems.hasNext () )
{
  Field f = ( Field ) itTreeItems.next () ;
  System.out.println ( f.getName () ) ;

} // end while

Is there any option to find a package from a field type?
0
CEHJCommented:
The class name of the field will give the package

Can we declare a field as a package?

CEHJCommented:
Not sure what you mean by that

U've given class name of the field gives the package name,i just want an example

Class tset=Class.forName(TreeSet);

                      System.out.println("packagename="+packageName);

                           }
 }

Iam getting correct result for cName&packageName
But how to store class name (cName) in a class TreeSet.
