Now this *is* interesting:
>export JAVA_HOME=/qibm/proddata/java400/jdk13
>echo $JAVA_HOME
>echo $PATH
>/usr/bin/java -version
qsh: 001-0014 Command /usr/bin/java not found.
> java -version
java version "1.1.8" 

So, despite having a path set in qsh, it appears that it isn't used, and
it's actually some OS/400 magic that determines what binaries can be

And the icing on the cake:
> /qibm/proddata/java400/jdk13/bin/java -version    
java version "1.1.8" 
> /qibm/proddata/java400/jdk12/bin/java -version    
java version "1.1.8" 

Hum. Very strange. But is it an install problem with the jdks or
something very odd about the way OS/400 and/or qsh works? 
Ok, I'm going to do a bit more research. We have another machine with
1.3 on it - I'll see what it says.

Thanks for the help so far guys, I'll keep you posted.
