Provider getProperty() method in Java with Examples

The getProperty() method of java.security.Provider class is used to search for the property with the specified key in this property list. If the key is not found in this property list, the default property list, and its defaults, recursively, are then checked. The method returns null if the property is not found.

Syntax:

public String getProperty(String key)

Parameters: This method takes the property key as parameter.

Return Value: This method returns the value in this property list with the specified key value or null if the property is not found.

Below are the examples to illustrate the getProperty() method:

                String property = provider.getProperty((String)iter.next());
  
                // printing the property of specified key
                System.out.println("value is : " + property);
