Java – Determine if the running OS is Windows, Mac or Linux

The Apache Commons Lang library could help you to determine the running OS type. Here is an simple example.

pom.xml

...
<dependency>
  <groupId>org.apache.commons</groupId>
  <artifactId>commons-lang3</artifactId>
  <version>3.1</version>
</dependency>
...

 

So now you could determine the OS by

...
import org.apache.commons.lang3.SystemUtils;
...

if (SystemUtils.IS_OS_WINDOWS) {
  System.out.println("This is a WINDOWS OS.");
} else if (SystemUtils.IS_OS_MAC) {
  System.out.println("This is a MAC OS.");
} else if (SystemUtils.IS_OS_LINUX) {
  System.out.println("This is a LINUX OS.");
} else {
  System.out.println("This is a SPECIAL OS.");
}
...

 

Done =)
