hamcrest-reflection provides fluent assertions for reflection-based assertions. I uploaded it to Maven Central this week, so using it got even simpler now.
It eventually happened that I had to ensure that a class of mine is annotated in a particular way (I didn't want to bind the whole framework that uses the annotation just to ensure this single issue, as this was a unit test but not an integration test). So I wrote my own Hamcrest  matcher with few pieces of reflection inside. Short time later I noticed that Hamcrest co-owner Nat PRYCE  already did the same and published his stuff on Google Code in a rather disregarded project named hamcrest-reflection, so I decided to get rid of my own hack and use his library instead. Unfortunately it was not found in Maven Central so far, so there was a good opportunity to give back a micro-contribution to the Open Source Community: I contributed a POM and uploaded the library to oss.sonatype.org , so few minutes later it was sync'ed to Maven Central . Now everybody can easily replace his own stuff (like I did) by a rather well-tested common piece of open source, simply by adding the following dependency to his own POM:
