Practical Java: Start Your Java Engine!
A little programming allows you to take complete control of your Java environment.
By Joe Pluta
In my previous article, I explained the complexities of the Java environment, especially as it relates to interaction with ILE languages. I introduced the three major components of a Java environment—the Java version, the classpath, and the runtime properties—and explained how to manage them non-programmatically through environment variables and properties files.
