Java Program to Get Current Working Directory

The java.lang.System.getProperty(String key) method gets the system property indicated by the specified key. You can get the current directory path bypassing the string value "user.dir" to this method.


Live Demo

public class Main {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      String curDir = System.getProperty("user.dir");
      System.out.println("You currently working in :" + curDir+ ": Directory");


You currently working in :C:\Documents and Settings\user\
My Documents\NetBeansProjects\TestApp: Directory
