JAMES (Java Apache Mail Enterprise Server) - Installation/Configuration Problem

Good Afternoon Intelligent Administrators/Debuggers!

I am installing JAMES on an internal server (
Specs of = SunOS v210b 5.10 Generic_120011-14 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V210

After placing and "gunziping" the respective file, I am trying to run it by:


and it's giving me the following error:

ERROR: JAVA_HOME not found in your environment.

Please, set the JAVA_HOME variable in your environment to match the location of the Java Virtual Machine you want to use.
I have just edited my /etc/profile and included

export JAVA_HOME
Though this does not seem to have any effect since I am getting the same error again.

Any ideas as to what else needs to be done to set the JAVA_HOME variable to get this working? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Did you either reload /etc/profile or fully log out and log in again after changing it ?
