Reflections - Java runtime metadata, scan classes

A Java runtime metadata analysis, in the spirit of Scannotations

Reflections scans your classpath, indexes the metadata, allows you to query it on runtime and may save and collect that information for many modules within your project.

Using Reflections you can query your metadata for:

* get all subtypes of some type
* get all types annotated with some annotation
* get all types annotated with some annotation, including annotation parameters matching
* get all methods annotated with some annotation
