Can I (non-root) change the default Java for just my account to my own local java?
I have a shell account on one of my university's servers, so I don't have root access. The only version of java currently available is the gnu version, but I need the sun version. I'd like to put everything in /home/me/usr/bin and then change that to my default java compiler. Is that possible without root access?
The server is running "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3 (Tikanga)" the kernel version is 2.6.18-128.1.10 the current java version is "java version "1.4.2" gij (GNU libgcj) version 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-44)"
If anyone could point me in the right direction, or even tell me why this would be a Really Bad Idea, I would appreciate it. Thanks.
