setting environment variable JAVA_HOME

This work for ubutnu 8.04

You need to put variable definition in the ~/.bashrc file.


and for ubuntu 11.04

  •        put the environment variables into the global “/etc/environment” file:JAVA_HOME=/usr/
  • ii.   source /etc/environment
  • iii.   echo $JAVA_HOME


From bash man page:

When an interactive shell that is not a login shell is started, bash reads and executes commands from /etc/bash.bashrc and ~/.bashrc, if these files exist.
