env varibables problem

As I install a new version of J2EE1.3.1, I try to change the J2EE_HOME path in /etc/profile. But when I type env, the path is still the old one. So, I check /home/sophia/.bash_profile and /root/.bash_profile and they are correct.
What other files do I have to check ?

Have you logged out and back in again, or otherwise restarted your shell? These scripts are only run when the shell starts up.

It works after rebooting. Thanks.
Can I restart a service without rebooting the server like "/etc/rc.d/init.d/* restart" ?

Gosh. This is probably a Windows habit that I recommend you try and get out of. You should only need to reboot a Linux box when you do something really major (like install a new kernel, or some new internal hardware).
For most user-level things all you need to do is log out and log in again. Tme great majority of services (daemons in Linux/Unix terms) can be stopped, started and restarted just by logging in as root and typing (for example)
/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd stop
or
/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart
and so on.
 
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
