Java – How to display all Environment variable

In Java, you can use System.getenv() to return a Map with all the environment variables.


	Map<String, String> env = System.getenv();
	env.forEach((k, v) -> System.out.println(k + ":" + v));

1. Example

DisplayApp.java

package com.mkyong.display;

import java.util.Map;

public class DisplayApp {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        Map<String, String> env = System.getenv();
        // Java 8
        //env.forEach((k, v) -> System.out.println(k + ":" + v));

        // Classic way to loop a map
        for (Map.Entry<String, String> entry : env.entrySet()) {
            System.out.println(entry.getKey() + " : " + entry.getValue());
        }

    }

}

Output

2. Sorting

Java 8 example to display all the environment variable in alphabetical order.

DisplayApp.java

package com.mkyong.display;

package com.mkyong.password;

import java.util.LinkedHashMap;
import java.util.Map;
import java.util.stream.Collectors;

public class DisplayApp {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        Map<String, String> env = System.getenv();
       
        LinkedHashMap<String, String> collect =
                env.entrySet().stream()
                        .sorted(Map.Entry.comparingByKey())
                        .collect(Collectors.toMap(Map.Entry::getKey, Map.Entry::getValue,
                                (oldValue, newValue) -> oldValue, LinkedHashMap::new));

        collect.forEach((k, v) -> System.out.println(k + ":" + v));

    }

}

Output
