The java::instanceof Command


java::instanceof javaObj type

The java::instanceof command is used to determine if a Java object is of a given type. The javaObj argument specifies an object handle. The type argument specifies an interface or class name. If the type argument is a class name, java::instanceof will return 1 if the javaObj argument is an instance of type or an instance of a subclass of type. If the type argument is an interface name, java::instanceof returns 1 if the javaObj argument implements the interface. Otherwise, java::instanceof returns 0.


This examples shows using the java::instanceof command to query the inheritance relationship of a java.lang.String object.
