As per the instructions
I've downloaded the newest verions of the jke (currently version jdk-7u13-linux-x64.tar.gz).
Followed the instructions without problem and everything installs correctly. However even after a reboot it will not find java when I type "which java".
I have gone ahead and simply added /usr/lib64/java/bin to my /etc/profile file and this resolved the issue.
I had two questions: I'm assuming the reason it's not being properly added has something to do with the java package from oracle. Is this the case and how would I confirm this?
Secondly as someone fairly new to linux are there any inherent risk in adding /usr/lib64/java/bin to my /etc/profile file? Would it have been better to add it to a local .bashrc?
Thanks for any replies
