Objective :

  • How to check your operating system by programming?
  • How to check your operating system by Java programming?
  • Write Java program to check operating system & its version

Hi folks,

Hey guys, if you want to know which operating system you are using & its version, there are 2 ways to do it as follows;

  • Using Command Prompt
  • Using Programming

1. Using Command Prompt

  • Go to Start Menu
  • Go to Run
  • Type cmd & press Enter/return. Command Prompt will open.
  • Type ver & press Enter/return, you will get the Name of your OS & its Version that you are using
Here I have used, ver command one of the DOS commands which returns Name of Operating System and its version.

2. Using Programming

Here we are using a Java Program to find the operating system you are using & its version :
package com.si.java.utility.os;

/**

public class MyOS
{
public static void main(String[] arg)
{
//To find the name of operating system.
String myOS = System.getProperty("os.name");
System.out.println("Operating System : " + myOS);

//To find the version of operating system.
String myOSVersion = System.getProperty("os.version");
System.out.println("Version : " + myOSVersion);
}
}
So, what are you waiting for?
Use it to create various system utilities & have fun.
