How would I find the machine name using the Java API?
I just tried printing out System.getProperties, and there doesn't appear to be anything relating to the actual name of the machine, only the property is remotely close to what I'm looking for.
Presently, I'm developing on Win2000, but we will be deploying on RedHat Linux 6.2.
