Short answer reflection.
Longer answer, in this case you need to run a full compiler, there is something called scala tool box than can help.

Even longer answer, don’t do this unless you are 100% this is the correct decision.
99% of the time I have some someone wanting to do this, was because they had a design error.

Strong agreement – this is almost always a Really Bad Idea. (Not least, it’s a fine recipe for horrible security problems unless you are extremely expert in that topic.)

What’s the actual problem you’re trying to solve? There are usually better approaches than this…
