I was trying out this code which prints current system properties. Is there any method to create a new System properties value?

The code that prints current system properties are as follows:



Please advise.

There are two 'setProperty/ies()' methods in the System class, but you should look at the API because there are caveats.

Having never used them, I'm also not sure if they set the value(s) permanently, or just for the current session; I'm sure somebody else will know though, or you can probably find the answer in the tutorials.

Hey man, thanks for the reply. I checked out the API and played around with it. It isn't permanent and exists only for the running process. Is there any way to make the changes permanent?
