There have been a couple of threads here (going back to 2015) on this 
topic. Peter included a method [1] in one threads to walk the 
superclasses and directly implemented interface of each class to find 
the accessible method. Rony's example might need someone like this if 
the reference to java.awt.Toolkit is not available.
