Setting JAVA_HOME environment variable?

Sorry for such a trivial question, but in Windows 2000 Server with Microsoft Visual J++ 6 and the JRK 1.1.8, can somebody tell me what the environment variables should be so that I can use this jdk? If not can you tell me what your environment variable JAVA_HOME points to?
And one last question if it's not too much to ask. Can you tell me the NNTP server address for SUN so that I can go to the newsgroups in my News reader rather than over the web?
George Hester

Thanks. I have a problem though. I installed the jdk 1.1.8 because I heard that was the last one supported using Visual J++. Hence I have a C:\jdk1.1.8. This folder has no JRE subfolder so I am stuck at what you said the Classpath should contain as the path\folder you say it should be does not exist.
I have a folder C:\Program Files\JavaSoft\JRE\1.3.1 which has the lib folder containing rt.jar.
So as you can see I'm sort of in a quandry.
If I make JAVA_HOME as you say then it does not contain the JRE. If I make JAVA_HOME C:\Program Files\JavaSoft so that your suggestion for Classpath is correct that folder does not contain the jrk and it seems that I will not be using it.
Any suggestions how to set this up so that it's right?

  • Setting the environment variable

    I just installed the rpm for the 1.4 SDK on my RedHat 7.1 box. Does anyone know how I can set the environment variable so it will recognize Java from the command line? Thanks in advance.

    You need to set a couple of environment variables in your "profile" script. Which one, exactly, depends on the shell you use. It's probably .profile on your home directory.
    JAVA_HOME=/usr/java1.4 (or wherever it really is)

    How to set the DISPLAY environment variable in AIX?Usual format is:
    export DISPLAY=
    Where the host is the hostname or IP address of the client platform running a X-Server. If the X-Server is running locally, then this entry can be omitted.
    The display-number is the display number of the X-Server to use. A single X-Server can have multiple displays. E.g. Unix server running a X-Server can have 10 users connected via X-Terminals and will this have 10 displays.
    Judging from X-Windows questions asked on OTN, it seems to be a tad complex to grasp for some - especially those from a MS Windows background as X-Windows is very different and also reverses the client-server concept, requiring the X-Server component to be running on the client platform (where the server platform runs the program that is the X-client).
    So it is a lot easier to rather use something like VNC instead - supported on most Unix platforms, Linux, Windows and Apple's OS/X.
    Simply run the VNC server on the server platform to create a virtual container for running the X-server display. Connect from a client using a VNC client.
    As it uses the RFB (Remote Frame Buffer) protocol, it is a lot faster than running the slower and larger X11 protocol required for X-Windows connectivity over TCP/IP.

  • Why do we actuallya need the setting of environment variables?

    Hello guys,
    I read that, in order to connect to the database via SQL*Plus, we need to have the environment variables set. So, SQL*Plus is a command tool, which doesnt know over which path to connect to db, if the environment variables are not set?
    How about the needs of setting environment variables at point of view of MS-DOS? I know that over MS-DOS we can check if the environment variables are already set or not. Or we can actively set the environment variables.
    When should we actually set the environment variables? Before we run the GUI or after? I read, that if we set it before we run the GUI, then the setting will be taken over when it comes to that step by running GUI. I am curious, since this would be interesting to know, if we use other version than XE.

    Oracle's flexibility ... many different versions working the same on many different versions of many different operating systems ... means that a single consistent installation and configuration methodology must work everywhere so as not to have the limitations of other competing products that work on only a single operating system or require that one learn a different syntax and methods for different versions.
    Be grateful Oracle is as it is. Your competence in one version and operating system translates into competence in others.

    {noformat}I need to set new environment variable on my linux machine from inside my code. I am using csh and the command works fine from command line:

    Environment variables and their values set from within a user process has their scope and lifetime limited to the process and its subprocesses. See java.lang.ProcessBuilder class and its API documentation for setting env for a subprocess that will be started by a ProcessBuilder instance. Even in the C programming we have the same limitation for the environment.
    Since they are not globally set, system command like env or Java method like System.getenv() can't see them.

  • Setting java_home env variable

    It looks like this java_home variable thing is gonna give me enaf trouble. Now I am sure i have done all as outlined in the release notes and cJDK_Users_Guide especially on "installation". There surely must be something wrong with my machine or jdk. Some body send me the full list of possible causes and suggested solutions.
    Problem is in this institution nobody seems understand what I am talking about

    First off, in your previous post, you provided your environment script:
    @echo off
    set jc_home = c:\java_card_kit-2_2_1
    set java_home = c:\j2sdk1.4.1_07
    Note that the spaces on either side of the equals sign are incorrect. The way you have it currently, the space is part of the key and value.
    "java_home<space>" does not equal "java_home", likewise "<space>c:\j2sdk1.4.1_07" does not equal "c:\j2sdk1.4.1_07".
    Remove the spaces and you will be OK.
    "Problem is in this institution nobody seems understand what I am talking about"
    Your problem seems to be related to your understanding of the windows command line - nothing to do with Java or Javacard.

    Check out the following link here you can find your desired NLS parameters.

    how do I set more than 1 at a time.
    You can set only one NLS_LANG parameter at a time.

  • Best practice for setting an environment variable used during NW AS startup

    We have installed some code which is running in both the ABAP and JAVA environment, and some functionality of this code is determined by the setting of operating system environment variables. We have therefore changed the .sapenv_<host>.csh and .sapenv_<host>.sh scripts found in the <sid>adm user home directory. This works, but we are wondering what happens when SAP is upgraded, and if these custom shell script changes to the .sh and .csh scripts will be overwritten during such an upgrade. Is there a better way to set environment variables so they can be used by the SAP server software when it has been started from <sid>adm user ?

    Thankyou. I was concerned that if I did that there might be a case where the .profile is not used, e.g. when a non-interactive process is started I was not sure if .profile is used.
    What do you mean with non-interactive?
    If you login to your machine as sidadm the profile is invoked using one of the files you meant. So when you start your Engine the Environment is property set. If another process is spawned or forked from a running process it inherits / uses the same Environment.
    Also, on one of my servers I have a .profile a .login and also a .cshrc file. Do I need to update all of these ?
    the .profile is used by bash and ksh
    The .cshrc is used by csh and it is included via source on every Shell Startup if not invoked with the -f Flag
    the .login is also used by csh and it is included via source from the .cshrc
    So if you want to support all shells you should update the .profile (bash and ksh) and one of .cshrc or .login for csh or tcsh
    In my /etc/passwd the <sid>adm user is configured with /bin/csh shell, so I think this means my .cshrc will be used and not the .profile ? Is this correct ?
    Yes correct, as described above!
    Hope this helps

  • How can I set PATH environment variables when there is no ~/.profile?

    I have a MacBook Air and just installed MySQL.
    I read the doc which I downloaded and should be able to run "mysql" from terminal as descibed below:
    Suppose that your MySQL programs are installed in /usr/local/mysql/bin and that you want to make it easy to invoke these programs. To do this, set the value of the PATH environment variable to include that directory. For example, if your shell is bash, add the following line to your .bashrc file:
    I checked on my terminal with ls -al, but no ~/.bashrc also no ~/.profile files.  Echo $SHELL shows me that I am using /bin/bash as shell.
    When I run export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/mysql/bin  then it works and I just have to type "mysql" to get the mysql command line but as soon as I kill my terminal and open a new terminal this setting is lost.
    Any idea how I can accomplish this?

    Never mind, I found it :-)
    I just created a file  .bash_profile in my home folder and added "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/mysql/bin" and restarted my terninal. Now it works.
