this is what I had in mind. The thing is that I wanted to get a typed object
~
public T_Ctxt getCtxtDTO();
~
instead of a flat one
~
public Object getCtxtDTO();
~
and even though I haven't had the chance/need to learn about generics and how
they relate to reflection I have the (probably wrong) hunch that there should
be a way to do that

Generally speaking, that was TL;DR. SSCCE = SHORT self-contained
compilable example.

However, control-F allowed me to find some things in that huge mess you
posted.

interface verifiableCLIContext12<T_Ctxt>{
public boolean verifyCtxt(String[] aSArs, Class<? extends T_Ctxt> TpArgK);
// public T_Ctxt getCtxtDTO();
public Object getCtxtDTO();
}

public interface verifialbleCLIContext12<T> {
public boolean verifyCtxt(String[] aSArs, Class<? extends T> TpArgK);
public T getCtxtDTO();
}

looks much better than using the same identifier over and over again.
class DTO_T_Ctxt12<T_Ctxt> implements verifiableCLIContext12<T_Ctxt> {

This is why you fail. Mostly overuse of the same crappy identifier
until you can't read it any more. I barely could read it.

class DTO_T_Ctxt12 implements verifiableCLIContext12<T_Ctxt> {

needs to be concrete. Now these work:
private T_Ctxt tCtxt; // operating context

as will this:
public T_Ctxt getCtxtDTO(){

Etc. I didn't read the rest. I didn't verify any of the above to
compile or test it.

~
public T_Ctxt getCtxtDTO();

Reflection is usually bad. There are places for it, but if you can solve
your problem without it, then do so.

getCtxtDTO will return an Object of the static type T_Ctxt, but T_Ctxt
has no information about it, other than it extends Object. In order to
know more about it, you need an interface or base-class.

class Foo<T_Ctxt> in Java is *not* the same as in C++. Templates are not
even closely possible in Java. I will say it one last time. You need to
use an interface.

Perhaps you should read about Generics, since that is what you're trying
(and failing) to use. A great introduction is here:

http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/extra/generics/

Read that, and one of your problems will be solved.
