For a session you can type

JAVA_HOME=<path to your java JDK>

Note that you have to set the path to your JDK, not the JRE.

Setting the path permanent, you can alter your ~/.profile 
(in your /home/<username> dir). Type here at the bottom

export JAVA_HOME=<path to your java JDK>

and add optionally to your path

export PATH=JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
