How do you check if a field references a container class - that points to a reference collection?

**If possible, use the following BCEL API

BECL specific - get the JavaClass for an instance of the Field you are interested in, use getAllInterfaces() to get all the interfaces, and check if one is java.util.Collection.

Can I ask what you are trying to do using BCEL - you have several open questions all around the same area, perhaps if you post a question about the overall problems/program you are trying to work with, people here might be in a better position to suggest solutions...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
