Hi,

I need to find Manufacturer Name of system and I am able to do it through below code



But does anyone know how this getSystemManufacturer api works? Is it getting the motherboard manufacturer or the assembler manufacturer or something else?
I wanted to understand what "system" manufacturer means, which part of system is actually considered here? How is java api getting it?

I have referred http://javasourcecode.org/html/open-source/jdk/jdk-6u23/com/sun/servicetag/SystemEnvironment.java.html but i couldn't find out how its setting the SystemManufacturer string.

Can anybody throw some light on this?

Thanks,
AP

I would start by reading the documentation. In fact I would have done that myself, except that SystemEnvironment doesn't seem to be part of the standard Java API. At any rate you should get the documentation from wherever you got the class from.
