Rob, I think he's talking about parameters given to the JVM, not the application parameters.
"D", any parameters of the form -Dproperty=value can be retrieved through System.getProperties(). 99% of the time, that's all you need. If you are in that last 1%, take a look at RuntimeMXBean in the Java API. It might be able to give you the information you need.
