Check the Java version
Some machines may have old versions of Sun Java, or versions of Java from different vendors. To check the the version of the Java installed in the system path, run java -version, for example:
$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_18"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.6.0_18-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 18.0-b16, mixed mode, sharing)
|If the version reported is not the Sun 1.6 series, please download a more recent JDK from http://java.sun.com and install before continuing.|
Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable

In Linux/Unix (bash), assuming the JDK is installed in /opt/java/jdk1.6.0_18, the following commands will set up the environment:
You can set these commands in:
- For a single user, ~/.bash_profile (runs only for Bash login shells) or ~/.bashrc (runs for every new Bash shell).
- For all users, you need to set up global config in /etc/profile or /etc/bash.bashrc file.
In Windows, assuming the JDK is installed in C:\jdk1.6.0_18, the following commands will set up the environment:

- Select the Advanced tab and then Environment Variables.
- In the System Variables table, create a new entry called JAVA_HOME with the pathname of the JDK installation (for example, C:\jdk1.6.0_18).
