Hello! I have started to learn java programming on Linux Platform. The version of Java is Java 1.6.0_02 and Linux - Fedora Core 6. At present I have to put the command: %export PATH=/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_02/bin:$PATH every time I login.
Can anyone please suggest me a permanent way of setting PATH in Linux (Fedora Core 6).

Thanks for your prompt reply, Freddy.
I followed the suggestions from you link and it was successfully.
What I did was I edited .bash_profile in the home directory modifying the PATH statement. PATH=/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_02/bin:$PATH:HOME/bin
The important thing to remember while doing the above changes is to put '/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_02/bin' before $PATH:HOME/bin. As if you put it at the end it takes the version of Java provide by Fedora Core 6 (something called gij).
