A Reflection Example

The following is a reflection example in Go:

import "reflect"

// Without reflection
f := Foo{}
f.Hello()

// With reflection
fT := reflect.TypeOf(Foo{})
// we are creating a new instance with dynamically determined type
fV := reflect.New(fT)

m := fV.MethodByName("Hello")
if m.IsValid() {
    m.Call(nil)
}
