Problem with multiple Java Classpaths in Ubuntu

Mannsi asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-23
Hello experts,

I've just started using Java in Ubuntu and one of my first tasks was connecting to a PostgreSQL DB using it. I read a bit and it said that I should change the Classpath in .bashrc to the location of the PostgreSQL .jar file. No problem, did that and everything worked like a charm. But now I wan't to add another file to my Classpath, and I so far I have been unsuccessful. This is the line that for my postgresql connection settings:

export CLASSPATH=.:/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-

My question is, how do I add another .jar file to my Classpath.
