RE:Environment variables

Posted by manisha on October 17, 2000 at 9:10 PM

Well, the System.getProperties() does not give you user defined Environment variables.
For getting those variables you can set the property while running the java program:
java -DmyDir=%MyAppDir% MyJavaApp

where %MyAppDir% will pickup the environment variable 'MyAppDir'.
and assign it to property myDir.

And then you can access 'myDir' using System.getProperties()

I am looking for better way to retrive environment variables.
If anybody can help, pls. do.
Thanks in Advance
