Setting up JAVA_HOME

In order for your Talend product to use the Java environment installed on your machine, you must set the JAVA_HOME environment variable.


  1. In the directory where Java is installed, find the location of the bin directory that contains the virtual machine: bin/server/jvm.dll.
    For example:
    • /usr/lib/jvm/java-x-oracle
    • /usr/lib/jvm/zulu-11
  2. Open a terminal.
  3. Use the export command to set the JAVA_HOME and Path variables.
    For example:
    • export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/jdk11.0.13
      export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
    • export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/<zulu_jdk>
      export PATH=/$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
  4. Add these lines at the end of the global profiles in the /etc/profile file or in the user profiles in the ~/.profile file.
    After changing one of these files you must log on again.
    Information noteNote: If you use sudo to run the Installer to install system services, make sure to use sudo -E before starting the installation.
