public class GetSheetsByNameTest {

  /**

   @throws IOException 
   @throws BiffException 
   */
  public static void main(String[] argsthrows BiffException, IOException {
    //Read the given XL sheet 
    Workbook workbook = Workbook.getWorkbook(new File("C:/JXL/Sheet-Names.xls"));
    System.out.println("Number of sheets in this workbook : " + workbook.getNumberOfSheets());
    
    Sheet sheetABCD = workbook.getSheet("ABCD");
    System.out.println(sheetABCD.getName());
    
    Sheet sheetPQR = workbook.getSheet("PQR");
    System.out.println(sheetPQR.getName());
    
    Sheet sheetXYZ = workbook.getSheet("XYZ");
    System.out.println(sheetXYZ.getName());
    
    //Close and free allocated memory 
    workbook.close()
  }

}
   

It gives the following output,
