To Configure Java JDK (Mac OSx)

  1. Edit the startup file (~/.bashrc).

  2. Modify PATH variable.
    Make sure that the JDK 1.8.0/bin directory is the first item in your PATH environment variable, as shown below:

    
                
             
    1
    2
    
    PATH=/usr/local/jdk1.8.0/bin:$PATH
    export PATH
  3. Save and close the file.

  4. Load the startup file.

    
                
             
    1
    
    > . /.profile

To verify that your installation was configured correctly, type:


         
      
1
> java -version

This should print the version of the java tool.
If the version is other than your desired JDK, or you get the error "java: Command not found", then the JDK is not properly installed.
