Question how do I set a path for my java command line tools

I have the java sdk installed on my system but I don't know how to set a path for the command line tools. I want to be able to run the java, javac and appletviewer executables without having to type in the location every time I do gets frustrating

If you're using Bash:
# export PATH=$PATH:/my/path/to/my/javasdk/bin

If you don't want to type that every time you log in, open the file ~/.bash_profile in your text editor and add ":/my/path/to/my/javasdk/bin" to the export PATH command, which you find in that file.
