Hi,

While setting up java and maven paths from computer-->properties--->advanced variables

why we have to give
JAVA_HOME and M2_HOME  in user variables(till root just before bin)

whereas
appending path till bin under system variables.

my main question is how user variables and system variables are different. which one to use when and how?


please advise

Systemwide vs user account wide.
It's obvious isn't it?

can not we we do both JAVE_HOME and path entry at user level or at system level itself(so that all users taken care) rather than doing one at user(ie JAVA_HOME which is top one) other(appending path at system variables at bottom...i feel weird to see users variables at top and system variables at bottom..i feel otherway like system variables at top and user variables at bottom more meaningful.)
Please advise?

whether its a system variable or a user variable doesn't matter. As long as JAVA_HOME is available.
