Help Configuring CLASSPATH for all users

  Asked By: Thelma    Date: Oct 27    Category: Java    Views: 777

I've just installed the j2sdk 1.4.0_03 on a Linux Red Hat 7.2.

I have configured the PATH & CLASSPATH variables by adding the next
piece of code to the .bashrc files of the users who want to use Java

export PATH
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.0_03

and it works fine!!!

The PROBLEM is that I HAVE TO ADD that piece of code to EVERY
single .bashrc file (one per user). If the number of users increases
then I have to work more and more and more... hehehehe. Does anybody
know if I can add the same code to another file so it has effects on
all of the users?

there must be a file named ".profile" for this purpose, isn't it, correct me;

Set it in /etc/profile. Depending on the version of linux  you are using there
might be better ways of doing this (eg. Redhat: look in /etc/profile.d/,
Gentoo: look in /etc/env.d). Just read through /etc/profile and you should
be able to determine how the distribution you are using works.
