Hi

I am trying to install java jdk-1.7.0_25
 I removed the existing version of java  rm -r jdk1.6.0.27 (deleting file by file) which was installed using self-extracting file.
Than downloaded the jdk-7u25-linux-64.rpm.

Executed the command: rpm –ivh jdk-7u25-linux-x64.rpm
After that:

alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/java/jdk-1.7.0_25/bin/java 20000
alternatives --install /usr/bin/javac javac /usr/java/jdk-1.7.0_25/bin/javac 20000

After that

alternatives  --config java
alternatives  --config javac

and I set the /usr/java/jdk-1.7.0_25/bin/java as the java version
the same for javac

now when I type: java -version

it returns

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

The  command: type java
Returns:
java is hashed (/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_27/bin/java)

Could you please help me to solve this problem?

Thank you in advance
alternatives --config java

Another thing:
When I type the command rpm -qa jdk
it returns
jdk-1.7.0_25-fcs
this is the correct version.

Hi again:

I used the command:
ls -l $(locate libjli.so)

it returns:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 105728 Jun 6 2013 /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_25/jre/lib/amd64/jli/libjli.so

Why not use yum?

yum list jdk*

You are going to run into a lot of problems and dependency hell.  My suggestion to you would be either but a subscription or move to CentOS.

As you may understand from my comments I am new to RHEL (and linux).  RHEL 5.7 is not supported anymore according to someone I contacted online. The lowest supported version is 5.11.
If i move to CentOS do I have to the same features. Do I have to be online connected to the internet to use yum

You have all the same features with CentOS.  You do not HAVE to be connected to the internet to use yum, but it makes life a lot easier.

libjli.so: cannot open shared object file

try this
create this file - /etc/ld.so.conf.d/java.conf
and put in it the path to that library; in this case /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_25/jre/lib/amd64/jli/
then run /sbin/ldconfig as root

You need to rpm -e whatever java you have on system deleting folder leaves library paths broken.
