    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // url  object
        URL url = null;
  
        try {
            // create a URL
            url = new URL(
                "https:// www.geeksforgeeks.org/url-getprotocol-method-in-java-with-examples/");
  
            // get the  Path
            String _Path = url.getPath();
  
            // display the URL
            System.out.println("URL = " + url);
  
            // display the  Path
            System.out.println(" Path= " + _Path);
        }
        // if any error occurs
        catch (Exception e) {
  
            // display the error
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}

Output:

URL = https:// www.geeksforgeeks.org/url-getprotocol-method-in-java-with-examples/
 Path= /url-getprotocol-method-in-java-with-examples/
