Hello Experts,

I am a linux box

I have my environment variables set as:
JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/java-1.6.0/jdk1.6.0_24
PATH=/usr/lib/java-1.6.0/jdk1.6.0_24

In my bash file I want to point to the java executable, which is the correct way to set it?

#!/bin/sh
JAVACMD=java

OR

#!/bin/sh
JAVACMD=JAVA_HOME

?

thanks Experts...

Neither, I think. More like

#!/bin/sh
JAVACMD=${JAVA_HOME}/bin/java
