    Setting java path in Linux


      I have installed Java 7 using rpm file: jdk-7u17-linux-x64.rpm, with the help of below command on my linux box:

      rpm -ivh jdk-7u17-linux-x64.rpm

      After completing the installation the java is installed in location "/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_17", when I try to find the jave version I am getting different result:

      java version "1.6.0_22"
      OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.10.4) (rhel-
      OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.0-b11, mixed mode)

      It is still pointing to 1.6 which was installed on my linux box earlier. How can I make sure that the java command uses the latest installed JDK 7?

          which java show what file select for this command.

          Environment variable PATH set order of path for find executable file.

          Try set:

          export PATH=/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_17/bin:$PATH
          export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_17

          add this commands to $HOME/.profile for make this changes permanent.
