You can't, except by hacky and unreliable methods. However, there are VERY few valid reasons for needing it. Why do you want it?
Search the forums for "sizeof" for more discussion.

to quote Bert and Kathy, "Java is NOT C".
there are many things you can do in C that you can't do in java. and mostly, that's a good thing. Many of the things Sun got rid of are the things that caused all KINDS of headaches.
If you have a problem you're trying to solve, post that and we can help you find a good way to do it.
if you are just curious, well, sometimes there are little mysteries in live that we won't ever solve.
