> The results from Class.getDeclaredMethods can include bridge and other synthetic methods, which can be unexpected by users (JDK-6815786, JDK-8142904) and appear to be inherited methods. The javadoc for Class.getDeclaredMethods should be updated to explicitly mention the possibility of synthetic methods appearing.

Joe Darcy has updated the pull request incrementally with one additional commit since the last revision:

  Add links to discussion in java.lang.reflect package javadoc.
