That's a lot of questions packed into one. The easiest first: You can try doing
"echo $SHELL" and see what you get. if that doesn't work, then do this:

echo $$
The above will give you the process number of your shell. Then run "ps -ef | grep pid" where pid is the process number. This
will print out the shell process name.

As far as setting the class path for all users, that generally isn't done. It is more typical to have a script to run any particular java command, and to set the classpath in the java command line in the script.

I am not sure what you are asking about the java version.

You usually want to set the classpath from the command line. The java program itself will redirect the standard class libraries to point to the JAVA Home from which it runs. I think you are trying to go about this the wrong way.

You need to either run the java command by giving the whole path name, or add the java directory to the PATH variable.

/usr/jdk1510/jdk1.5.0_10/bin/java -version

or

PATH=$PATH:/usr/jdk1510/jdk1.5.0_10/bin
export PATH
java -version

With bash, you can place the commands in the file ".profile" (note the leading dot) in your home directory on the target system.

if you want to set it for all users then use system wide files like

/etc/profile (for sh, ksh, bash users)

or

/etc/.login (csh users)
