How to get the Java classpath?

The RuntimeMXBean.getClassPath() returns the Java class path that is used by the system class loader to search for class files. This method is equivalent to System.getProperty("java.class.path").

Multiple paths in the Java class path are separated by the path separator character of the platform of the Java virtual machine being monitored.

package com.javacoderanch.example.lang.management;

import java.lang.management.ManagementFactory;
import java.lang.management.RuntimeMXBean;

public class GetClassPath {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        RuntimeMXBean bean = ManagementFactory.getRuntimeMXBean();
        String classPath = bean.getClassPath();
        System.out.println("classPath = " + classPath);
    }
}
