How to read environment variables in Java

Published by under Java

You can set environment variables or pass them in using the -Dvariablename syntax SET logfile=/location/to/my/log/file.log or java -Dlogfile=/location/to/my/log/file.log HelloWorld When you want to access these environment variables from your Java source file you can use Java 1.5 and newer: String logfileLocation = System.getenv(“logfile”); Java 1.4 and older: String logfileLocation = System.getProperty(“logfile”);
