I don't know
do you have HP Unix?
Can you help?
I am testing a tool on client's computer
and I can only use Java runtime

Do you have HP Unix?
If yes, can you please help?
Can you just use the Java Runtime for HP Unix without installing it?

If yes, which Java Runtime version do you use? Can you please help?
Thanks!

Thank you!
Just one more question.
What path, classpath, and Java HOME, other parameters or environment variables I have to set in Linux, HP Unix, Solaris and IBM AIX?

Thank you!

Different flavours of Unix have different way of setting variables, so you need to check per platform

CLASSPATH: Not necessary to set this permanently and not really a good idea to do so

JAVA_HOME: Good idea to set this - it's value should  be the installation directory

PATH: java should be on the PATH, so for bash, that would be as below
export PATH=${JAVA_HOME}/bin:${PATH}

All that needs to be set is the PATH, and generally the install will do that for you
JAVA_HOME is used to point to the JDK so is not applicable for you
And the CLASSPATH list locations to look for classes, preferable to leave this blank unless you have particular locations that need to be searched
