Post Installation Instructions

1. Set the JAVA_HOME Environment Variable

The Host server JAVA_HOME environment variable must be set for Borland Search to run on the Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Solaris operating systems as described below.

Microsoft Windows

  1. Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop.
  2. Select Properties.
  3. Select the Advanced tab.
  4. Click the Environment Variables button.
  5. Under System Variables, you should see the JAVA_HOME variable, and the value should be the location where the Java Runtime Environment is installed. If the variable it is not present, click the New button under System Variables. The New System Variable dialog box is displayed. Enter JAVA_HOME as the variable name, and the location where the Java Runtime Environment is installed as the variable value (example: C:\JRE1.6.0_10). Click OK.

Linux

The procedures for setting environment variables depend on the shell being used. Refer to your system administrator’s guide for correct procedures.

  2. Locate the line beginning with <Connector port = “8080” and replace the “8080” with the desired port number.
  3. Save the file.
