I'm working in red hat linux enterpise server 5 with JDK 1.7.  When i do java -version of javac -version, i get:

 java: error while loading shared libraries: libjli.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Not sure what to do.  Output of echo %PATH /usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_51/bin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/Office/bin

output of echo $JAVA_HOME

usr/java/jdk1.7.0_51

usr/java/jdk1.7.0_51

find the libjli.so file first

ls -l $(locate libjli.so)

if you don't find it in the common library folders (/lib, /usr/lib) then edit or create /etc/ld.so.conf.d/java.conf and add the path to where libjli.so resides then (as root or with sudo) run ldconfig then try again

Well, it changed the message :)... Now it says:

Error: could not find libjava.so

Error: Could not find Java SE Runtime Environment.

Take it externally and create the soft link to required location it will work.. I have seen similar issue while working on RHEL 5/6

@seth simmons... I installed RPM

@Sandy.... Take externally?  Move out of the folder it is installed in?  Is there article you could point me to to do this?  I'm a linux novice.

No you did not install rpm

yum install java-1.7.0\* installs rpm and places it as default java
You override PATH, so actually you never reach other than your handmade java install.
