How to get the name of current executed method?

package com.javacoderanch.example;

public class GetCurrentMethodName {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        //
        // Get the current executing method name
        //
        String methodName =
                Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace()[1].getMethodName();
        System.out.println("methodName = " + methodName);

        GetCurrentMethodName obj = new GetCurrentMethodName();
        obj.executeAMethod();
    }

    private void executeAMethod() {
        //
        // Get the current executing method name
        //
        String methodName =
                Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace()[1].getMethodName();
        System.out.println("methodName = " + methodName);
    }
}

This program will print out the following string:

methodName = main
methodName = executeAMethod
