Get Competitor Names through Apex

Hi

Is there any way that I can fetch competitor names configured in opportunity object through Apex code?

How are the competitor names configured.
Is it a textarea field which contains a comma separated value.

Hi Satish

Competitor is a  standard picklist available in Opportunity object.

I now understand the issue. You are basically looking to get all the valid valid values of a standard picklist.
This is possible using the describe methods of sObject.

Hi Satish

The problem is this Competitor field is not visible through API. So whenever I try to use describe it simply says no such field on Opportunity object.
