Determine the Security Providers for the JVM

Note for myself: While working with Oracle's JDBC/THIN driver with SSL this comes in handy

package pas.test;


public class GetProviders
public GetProviders()

public static void main(String[] args)
Provider[] pl = Security.getProviders();
System.out.println("Printing Available Security.getProviders()");
for (int i=0; i < pl.length; i++)
System.out.println("\n" + i + ". " + pl[i].toString());
System.out.println("Name: " + pl[i].getName());
System.out.println("Version: " + pl[i].getVersion());
System.out.println("Info: " + pl[i].getInfo());
