Printing the class-path in Clojure

Let’s compare how we print the class-path in Clojure and how we do it on Java.

In Clojure:

(println (seq (.getURLs (java.lang.ClassLoader/getSystemClassLoader))))

In Java:


public class PrintClasspath {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        //Get the System Classloader
        ClassLoader sysClassLoader = ClassLoader.getSystemClassLoader();

        //Get the URLs
        URL[] urls = ((URLClassLoader)sysClassLoader).getURLs();

        for(int i=0; i< urls.length; i++)

To be fair, the output is not the same, but the effect is.

  1. Cool one liner. I’m just starting in on Clojure and played around until I could get the Clojure version to print in the same format as your Java version:

    (doseq [url (seq (.getURLs (java.lang.ClassLoader/getSystemClassLoader)))]
      (println (.getFile url)))

    Love it!

    This might not work in all cases.
    You could also want:

    (import 'clojure.pprint)
    (pprint (seq (.getURLs (->  (Thread.currentThread)  (.getContextClassLoader)))))
  3. this code worked fine with the older version of clojure. I tried it with the newer one but unfortunately, it didn’t work out. What could be the issue??
