Hello,

 I am on the process of doing a fresh install of Oracle 9i DB on Red Hat Enterprise 3 (ES).
I downloaded java JDK 1.3.1 09 to a  OraHome directory.

When I type which java.......>I get no java installed.

I included the /usr/sbin folder where I ran the binary Java file and I get that the Java RPM file is installed.
I included an entry for the /usr/sbin folder in my .bash_profile file.

How can I resolve this ?

do

find / | grep "java" > Found

to see where it is installed because it may be somwhere else.
My java path is

/usr/lib/java

If rpm says it's installed you should be able to use 'rpm -q --list java' to find out were all the files are.

Okay, the package name isn't java, which is why the list command failed. Try 'rpm -q --list jdk'. I think you'll find that the files are in someplace like /usr/jdk, /usr/java, /opt/java, etc. None of those would be  a part of your PATH and you'd need to add the java bin directory to your PATH.
