Subject Re: Environment variables, are they really needed??
Date Thu, 17 Jul 2003 18:46:43 GMT

Programming 101.

I'd rather have something defined once and refer to it a dozen times then 
have to define it a dozen times.  As soon as you upgrade, you have to 
change it in 12 places instead of one.

Some people have lots of things that use Java besides Tomcat, thus 
something like JAVA_HOME comes in handy.
