Java Env in FreeBSD

hi, i have modified my .cshrc of my root to include this

setenv JAVA_HOME   /usr/local/jdk1.5.0

previously, i have set this instead;

setenv JAVA_HOME /usr/local/jdk1.4.0

this is because according to the documentation, i have to install the version 1.4 beforei can proceed with 1.5 version. But anyway, this is beside the story. The problem that i am facing now is i am suspecting the environment of my JAVA_HOME still pointing to jdk1.4

I have typed, echo $JAVA_HOME and it's return me the correct path. But then i still suspecting the setenv JAVA_HOME is stored somewhere else.

How can i check, what is the command for me to verify the java version that i am using is correct? or any place that is setting the java_home beside the .cshrc

are you using tomcat or such ? or else, your cshrc should point you to the right JAVA_HOME.
