Java Question

Java - get the current class name?

All I am trying to do is to get the current class name, and java appends a useless non-sense $1 to the end of my class name. How can I get rid of it and only return the actual class name?

String className = this.getClass().getName();


The "$1" is not "useless non-sense". If your class is anonymous, a number is appended.

If you don't want the class itself, but its declaring class, then you can use getEnclosingClass(). For example:

Class<?> enclosingClass = getClass().getEnclosingClass();
if (enclosingClass != null) {
} else {

You can move that in some static utility method.

But note that this is not the current class name. The anonymous class is different class than its enclosing class. The case is similar for inner classes.
