Java is like a variant of the game of Tetris in which none of the pieces can fill gaps created by the other pieces, so all you can do is pile them up endlessly.

  1. Once one uses java.lang.reflect.*, way less pieces are needed: one can create new interpretes as it fits.

  2. @plan9ner: No one uses java.lang.reflect.* because they don’t know it exists. But, if the guy needs some kind of reflection, he/she will write something else instead. That’s the point.
