I have an application that requires a JAVA_HOME directory to be set

I performed a 'set', and did not see one:


...
HOSTTYPE=x86_64
ID=0
IFS=$' \t\n'
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
...

Open in new window


Below describes the java location and availability

# which java
/usr/bin/java
# java -version
java version "1.7.0_09-icedtea"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (rhel-2.3.7.1.el6_3-i386)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)

Open in new window


How can I set the JAVA_HOME env var correctly, could someone please post the command or tell me what file to include the command in to get the command working upon boot up

My software requires a JAVA_HOME env var, as opposed to a HRE_HOME

Could someone please tell me how to perform this
