As everyone says.

Just to explain it and give a tip for the future. *HOME, *DIR and
*FILE variables usually need to point to the directory where the
application is installed. *PATH variables usually contain a list of
paths to search. This isn't a standard, but in general this works.
It's always best to determine the value from the the purpose of the
variable, ie. if it's and indication of where something is located,
then it's a single path component. If it's a search strategy, then
it's usually a list of path components (ex. GERONIMO_HOME and
CLASSPATH respectively).
