edit the file /etc/profile

This file is executed every time a user logs on to the computer.

PS you can the sequence above, or you can use the pathmunge function, the effect will be the same...

I would create an /etc/profile.d/java.sh

Paste those lines into it
and  chmod 755 /etc/profile.d/java.sh

and also make an  /etc/profile.d/java.csh with the lines:

setenv JAVA_HOME /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.0_01
setenv ANT_HOME /opt/jakarta-ant-1.4.1
set path = ( ${JAVA_HOME}/bin ${ANT_HOME}/bin $path )

chmod 755 /etc/profile.d/java.csh  (as well)

That way the variables can be setup for both shells (if you use both)
and the /etc/profile script is left pristine  which may be nice when you upgrade later
