I am installing Tomcat on a RHEL5 machine, and am having some trouble starting it, because JAVA_HOME isn't set. Tomcat is being started using
sudo /sbin/service tomcat start
and runs under the user
tomcat. When I am logged in as myself or as the root user,
JAVA_HOME is properly set (using
/etc/profile.d/java.sh). I am guessing that this isn't being properly passed through by sudo.
Can someone point me in the direction of the change I need to make to get this variable either passed through by sudo or picked up by the
tomcat user? I believe there are a number of ways.
Thanks in advance
