Subject RE: Install Guide (JAVA PATH)

Yes, I think you are right   :-)

I ran the following, and found the older version of Java first in the

`which java` -version

java version "1.4.2"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2)
Classic VM (build 1.4.2, J2RE 1.4.2 IBM build cxia321420-20040626 (JIT
enabled: jitc))

Also as far as JDK5 goes you could type in:

which java

to make sure that it was pulling up the JDK5 version. If not (you get
/usr/bin/java or path to the ibm or gcj version), you needed to put it
in your path.  Most *unix platforms use /etc/profile. Go down to the
that says export PATH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH. Right before that you would
to enter PATH="/path/to/javasdk/bin:$PATH". That would get the right
binaries in the path.

Right below that I would add JAVA_HOME="/path/to/javasdk" and then

I find that to be the simplest way of getting java up and going.
Without it
getting tomcat to run is just going to be frivolous.
