java.home : Java Glossary


java.home is a system property that describes where the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) is. It would normally have a value such as: C:\Program Files\java\jre1.8.0_112\ which is the shorthand DOS (Disk Operating System) name of for the JRE directory. You can discover it in
String home = System.getProperty( "java.home" );

It is also wise to set up a JAVA_HOME environment variable to C:\Program Files\java\jre1.8.0_112\ if you have just the JRE installed or J:\Program Files\java\jdk1.8.0_112\ if you have the JDK (Java Development Kit) installed.
