I have a standalone application, which is invoked with-
matlabXX.exe 'abc.txt'
Now when it is executing, I can get 'abc.txt' using vararg but how can I get 'matlabXX.exe'?

Using .exe implies MS Windows.
You can use System.Diagonstics.Process and related facilities methods to find your current process identifier and use that to find the name of your process.

See attached utility that I use to get the filename of the executing standalone executable.
