how to set enviroment variables

RH 7.2 - what is the easiest way to set enviroment variables? I can see whats there for a paticular variable with echo $PATH.

Also, I cant run Java commands - i get "bash : java : command not found".

Ive got the book "Redhat Linux 7.2 bible" and RH 7.2 installed. Ive since come a long way:
Samba configured and my network networking...
various software installed
Java IDE NetBeans installed

Where is a good online resource for dealing with the shell ?

You can set env variables like this.
That assigns the existing PATH and the additional /usr/java/bin to the environment variable PATH.
