How to get system properties in JShell in Java 9?

JavaObject Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

JShell is a REPL (Read-Evaluate-Print-Loop) tool used to execute simple statements, evaluates it, and displays the result without a main() method. We can start it by simply type "jshell" in command-line prompt.

We need to get the system properties by using System.getProperty() and System.getProperties() methods.

In the below code snippet, we can able to display the system properties in the JShell tool by using static method property() of System class.

Snippet-1

jshell> System.getProperty("java.class.path")
$1 ==> "C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk-9.0.4\\lib;C:\\json-jars\\json.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\json-simple.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\gson.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\commons-io.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\jackson-core.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\jackson-databind.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\jackson-annotations.jar;.;C:\\json jars\\flexjson.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\jackson-dataformat-xml.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\stax2-api.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\jackson-dataformat-csv.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\javax.json.jar;.;C:\\json jars\\javax.json-api.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\jackson-module-jsonSchema.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\json-lib.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\commons-lang.jar;.;C:\\json-jars\\commons-logging.jar;.;"


In the below code snippet, we have to use the “properties” object that extends Hashtable. So all properties can be listed as key/value pairs in the JShell tool by using "System.getProperties().forEach((k, v)".

Snippet-2

jshell> System.getProperties().forEach((k, v) -> { System.out.printf("%s: %s\n", k, v); })
