I'd like to get all the methods from a file (.text or .java), but I don't know the file's name yet (the user can choose it with jFileChooser). So I don't know the class's name. I have this code:
import java.lang.reflect.Method;
import javax.swing.JFileChooser;

public class Test {

   public static void main(String[] args) throws Throwable {

        JFileChooser fc = new JFileChooser();
        File f = null;
        if (fc.showOpenDialog(null) == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {
            f = fc.getSelectedFile();
        int errorCode = String[]{
                    "-classpath", "bin",
                    "-d", "../Tmp",

        System.out.println("errorCode:" + errorCode);
        File classesDir = new File("../Tmp");

        ClassLoader parentLoader = Test.class.getClassLoader();

        URLClassLoader loader1 = new URLClassLoader(
                new URL[]{classesDir.toURL()}, parentLoader);

        BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(f));
        String load = "";
        while ((load = br.readLine()) != null) {
            if (load.startsWith("package")) {
                load = load.replaceAll("package", "") + "." + f.getName().substring(0, f.getName().indexOf("."));
                load = load.replace(";", "").trim();
        Class cls1 = loader1.loadClass(load);
        Method[] methods = cls1.getDeclaredMethods();
        for (Method m : methods) {

It works, if the class doesn't contains "extends", or uses another class's methods, but if it do, I get errors.
What should I do to fix these problems? I think it has to do something with "classpath" and "bin"

Errors? You need to tell us exact error messages; in what line, etc.

If the file contains "extends":
<pre lang="java">error: cannot find symbol
public class RefactorMuveletek extends MasikOsztaly{</pre>

If the input's class is connected to another class:
<pre lang="java">
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: csomag.eolvasottOsztalyNev

Exception while removing reference: java.lang.InterruptedException
