Java fonts - how to list of all the available fonts

Java Fonts FAQ: How do I create a list of all the fonts available on the current platform?

Answer: To list all the fonts available to you in a Java application (a Java Swing application), I use the GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getAvailableFontFamilyNames() method of the GraphicsEnvironment class, which technically returns an array of all the font family names it finds on the local system.

Here's a small but complete sample Java program that prints out all the fonts (font family names):

package com.devdaily.javasamples;

import java.awt.GraphicsEnvironment;

public class ListJavaFonts
{

  public static void main(String[] args)
  {
    String fonts[] = 
      GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getAvailableFontFamilyNames();

    for ( int i = 0; i < fonts.length; i++ )
    {
      System.out.println(fonts[i]);
    }
  }

}

On my Mac OS X version 10.4.10 system, this Java fonts program results in the following output:
