Short of reflection, no. Also, don't use reflection =].

 

Anonymous inner classes are usually used to override the behaviour of one or more methods, most commonly single method interfaces such as Runnable, Callable and event handlers.

are anonymous inner classes mostly for overloading a few methods without creating an entirely new class to do so?

Yes exactly, with "a few methods" usually being 1 or 2.
Typically they will just be implementing an interface too so all the behaviour is actually coming out of the anonymous class.
