Where was this Java class loaded from?

Have you ever had a need to determine exactly where a class was loaded from? Here’s a simple way to find out if your environment security settings allow it:

MyClass myClass = new MyClass();
System.out.println("Loaded from: "
          + myClass.getClass().getProtectedDomain()
                  .getCodeSource().getLocation());
