I am new to Linux so you will have to excuse my asking what are probably
silly questions. I am trying to edit the $PATH variable in my ~/.bashrc
file to include the $J2EE_HOME/bin directory. I am running into 2
1) When i try and force the changes to .bashrc by running source
.bashrc, the new entries are being added to $PATH but older ones, that
have been removed during last edit, are not. It is not until i log out
and back in again that these changes are recognised. Is this normal?
2) when i do include the $J2EE_HOME/bin directory i use the command
When i source .bashrc my $PATH now begins with
/usr/local/bin/j2sdkee1.3.1/bin. This is correct. However when i log out
and back in my original PATH now begins with
/usr/local/bin/j2sdkee1.3.1/bin:/usr/local/bin/j2sdkee1.3.1/bin:/usr/local/bin/j2sdkee1.3.1/bin Any simple explanations for this?
