How to start bash commands automatically every time I start the computer


Hi,
I use Debian 4.0 . And I just installed Tomcat and JDK manually. There is a need to set the variables JAVA_HOME etc every time the computer starts.
So i would like to know if there any file that i can change adding these bash command lines like: JAVA_HOME="/usr/local/java".

Thanks

Edit ~/.bash_profile and add something like
Code:
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java

If a change /etc/skel/.bash_profile the commands will be started for anyone who logs in?

I will do this in Server machine so, not necessarily someone will login. It will just start.

Thanks
