RunTest spawns new processes with Runtime.exec(), which inherits your
current environment (which presumably has /usr/j2se/jre in the PATH).
The test harness just calls "java ..." which ends up being the one in
/usr/j2se/jre in the forked process.

So, put it in your path. If you really want to call it explicitly and
not put it in your path for some reason, then you need to also pass
the full path in as the javaCmd property:

java -DjavaCmd=/usr/jdk/jdk1.6.0/bin/java org.apache.derby.functionTests...
