AFAIK, there is no access to system environment variables from within an executing Java application.

Normally, I would say that you need to pass the value in from the command line:

java -Dvarname=value MyClass

In this case, the servlet container is effectively compiling and executing your JSP (convert to Servlet, compile, run), so I don't know if it's possible at all.

jimmack is correct on this. If you mean you want to read server side env var, I used this in startup script

set >env.properties

and then use java.util.Properties to read the env.properties file. you get all your env var from there.
