I am running Java NetBeans 6.9 jdk 6 on SUSE Linux (a newbie on linux) and I currently need to get the path of the weblogic domain of my Java application.
I have read that I can directly access the environment variable by using this :
The problem is I couldn't find the DOMAIN_HOME environment variable (actually I have no idea on setting up the env. variable in linux). I found instructions on the internet telling me that I could set this up by setting :
Export DOMAIN_HOME = /desired_path_to_domain
Following several instructions found on the internet, I have already tried the following resolutions :
1. I wrote this on my home's .profile
2. I also wrote that on my home's .bashrc and on /etc/bash.bashrc
3. I executed this on the konsole
... and as expected I saw the list of all the environment variables. At first, I thought it was pointed to .profile but it wasn't. It was displaying an entirely different value from what was defined on .profile when I executed the line
... so I concluded that my environment variables weren't defined on .profile
The question is, where exactly is that printenv (environment variables) defined and how can I modify it to include my DOMAIN_HOME variable. Guys, I really need this. I came up posting on forums because none of the solutions above or anywhere else could solve my problem. DOMAIN_HOME remains null (even after restarting my linux server)
Thank you very much for any quick and kind response.
Please help. Thanks.
I'm not sure what this "DOMAIN_HOME" is, since usually I think of a domain as being something like "mousetech.com", not a filesystem path.
But it doesn't really matter.
You can set up environment variables in a number of places. Whenever a new shell is created, it will (usually) query some or all of those places. I'd be more specific, except that the exact list varies depending on the distro and on which shell you're using. Plus, you can set profile options system-wide (for example, in the /etc/profile.d directory) or per-user (/home/tim/.bash_profile).
Sometimes the only way things ever got fixed is because people became uncomfortable.
It sounds like you may have done almost the right thing already; if you included that line as shown above in your .profile file, or other similar files -- except that the # character turns the whole thing into a comment. If you actually included the #, try again without it!
