Package Class getName() method

  • getName() method is available in java.lang package.
  • getName() method is used to retrieve the name of the package.
  • getName() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with the class object only and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
  • getName() method does not throw an exception at the time of returning the name of the package.


    public String getName();


  • It does not accept any parameter.

Return value:

The return type of this method is String, it returns fully qualified name of the package like this (java.util).


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of String getName() of Package method

public class PackageName {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Get Package by using getPackage() method
        Package pkg = Package.getPackage("java.util");

        // Get name of the package by using getName() and
        //stored in a variable pname
        String pname = pkg.getName();
