I am not sure about correct way to export PATH
I have Java and Springboot cli added to
PATH however, when
source /etc/profile it gives error.
And on restarting PC,
BASH is not loading.
My export in
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-22.214.171.1242.b07-2.el8_5.x86_64 export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin export CLASSPATH=$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/ext:$JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar export SPRING_HOME=/home/jacobd/spring-2.7.0/bin export PATH=$SPRING_HOME/bin
Can anyone guide, where I am doing wrong.
There is no actual error in the code that you show that would provoke
source to report an error, so it’s unfortunate that you don’t mention what that specific error message says. The file does, however, contain a problematic typo (?) that would make it difficult to use the shell after sourcing it.
On that last line, you throw away the old value of
PATH and replace it with
$SPRING_HOME/bin. The effect of this is that the shell will only find external executables in that single path while ignoring all the standard paths.
I’m assuming you want to append that new path to the
PATH variable in a similar way as is done on the 2nd line of the code that you show, rather than replace the old value.
Note that after exporting a variable, it remains exported, so there’s no need to export it again (unless you explicitly unset it).
