Is there a way to get the values from the getter method of a POJO through Field API java reflection?.
public class Cruft {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		Student student = new Student();
		student.setAge(12);
		student.setName("Foo");
		Field[] fields = Student.class.getDeclaredFields();
		for (Field field : fields) {
			System.out.println(field.getType().getSimpleName() + field.getName() );
		}
	}
}

Are you talking about invocation of methods through reflection, like in this example:

Thanks. Figured out after reading Field api.
public class Cruft {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		Student student = new Student();
		student.setAge(12);
		student.setName("Foo");
		Field[] fields = Student.class.getDeclaredFields();
		for (Field field : fields) {
			System.out.println(field.getType().getSimpleName() + field.getName() );
System.out.println(field.get(student));		
}
	}
}

> from the getter method of a POJO

be aware that what you are doing is not calling the getter methods

you are right objects but i did not find any easier way to get the values from the getter method through reflection when looping through the field name.
