Setting the path variable for Java Comp.


Greetings,
I'm running Fedora Core 1 and am having trouble setting the path variable.

/home/lmellen/Java is my working directory and is where the j2sdk1.4.2_04 resides. If in this directory I type:

/home/lmellen/java/j2sdk1.4.2_04/bin/javac HelloWorldApp.java

it compiles fine.

Now I did google and came to /home/lmellen/.bash_profile.
vi .bash_profile has:

#user specific environment and startup programs

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin

export PATH
unset USERNAME

After :$HOME/bin i've tried all combinations of:

:$HOME/lmellen/Java/j2sdk1.4.2_04/bin
:/home/lmellen/Java/j2sdk1.4.2_04/bin
:$HOME/Java/j2sdk1.4.2_04/bin

Nothing seems to work, all I get is javac: command not found

Either I'm close or a mile away. I could use some help.

Thank You---Larry

I'm also having to do the same with the next step!

/home/lmellen/java/j2sdk1.4.2_04/bin/java HelloWorldApp--works,

just java gives me-- java: command not found
