Setting up enviornment variable for DHIS2 on Ubuntu 12.04

Dear Expert Friends

As mentioned in the ‘DHIS2 Implementation guide’ I try to configure few of my new servers I find that the ‘setenv.sh’ might not working. As per the ‘Implementation Guide’ i create the ‘setenv.sh’ in the /bin folder. The active java folder is ‘/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle’ and also java vesrsion showing the proper installation.

java version “1.8.0-ea”
Java™ SE Runtime Environ
Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Ser

Please note that previous vesrion of Java is there also.

JAVA_HOME mentioned as

export JAVA_HOME=’/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle’

But Tomcat Showing diffent JVM with default memory seetings.

I usullay configure differently. Please can someone tell me whts wrong with this setenv.sh.

Regards

Hannan Khan

Dear Hannan,

Java 8 is still Early Access. The public release has not been made.
The Oracle roadmap says its Q1 2014 and the beta is planned for Sept 2013.

So its not something that is guaranteed in all cases

Also it seems likely that tomcat is using the other installed Java.
Can you do: sudo update-alternatives --config java
and select the jdk7 that is installed

Dear Hannan,

Funny thing, I was also trying to find the right “bin” folder for setenv.sh for the first time just a couple of hours ago. It isn’t /bin at the root of the drive, but bin under the Tomcat folder. Mine was at /usr/local/apache-tomcat-6.0.36/bin. And putting setenv.sh there worked for me. Yours may be somewhere else.

Cheers,

Jim

Ok.

I already tested with Oracle JDK 7. Not working.

The problem with the JAVA_HOME variable.

echo $JAVA_HOME returns blank. So setenv.sh is not working. Why it is not working?

I usullay use different method; but as manual sugest to use ‘setenv.sh’ so I try to use that.

Hannan

You must put the setenv.sh file in the correct bin directory,. If you have installed with the package manager, this will usually be in /usr/share/tomcat7/bin/ directory. This is really not a good idea, unless you only have a single instance of Tomcat on this machine.

If you are using a local installation (obtained through a tar archive) then it should go in the respective /bin/ directory where you extracted the archive into.

We need to revise the documentation really, to utilize the tomcat-user package, which provides a much better mechanism, as you can still use the package manager, but create multiple instances of tomcat on the same machine.

Jason
