Environment Variables

How do I access environment variables?

There is an undocumented method in java.lang.System with the signature:

public static String getenv(String)
You can use this method to fetch the string values of environment variables. However, this method is deprecated and will surely soon disappear because not all platforms support the concept of environment variables. Instead, you should pass environment variable values using the -D flag to the java runtime and access them with the getProperty() method in the System class.
