java get environment variable

The getenv() method of the java.lang.System provide us the functionality to get the environment variable value. To get the single environment variables value we have to call the getenv("environment variable") method where environment variable is a value that we want to evaluate. Here is the simple example of getting environment variable "WINDIR". 

Here is the full code of GetEnvironmentVariable.java as follows:

GetEnvironmentVariable.java

import java.util.*;
import java.lang.*;

public class GetEnvironmentVariable
{
  public static void main(String args[]) {
  try{
  String environmentVariable = System.getenv("WINDIR");
  System.out.print("Environment Variable are =>"+environmentVariable);
  }catch (Exception e){
  System.out.println("Exception caught ="+e.getMessage());
  }
  }
}

Output:

C:\javaexamples>javac GetEnvironmentVariable.java

C:\javaexamples>java GetEnvironmentVariable
Environment Variable are =>C:\WINNT
