I have downloaded and ran the self extracting jre bin file. The instillation folder in my subdirectory. Within that same subdirectory I type
java - version but to no avail, I'm greeted with this message
-bash: java: command not found which indicates that java has not been installed. What other steps do I need to take to get java working?
I found this on a site, but I'm not sure which file to launch or how to do it:
The java executable you need to launch is located in a subfolder, called 'bin'. This way of installation will not configure a default 'java' command for you: you must do this manually or always include the full path in your startup script.
