Prior to installing your Talend product, you have to set the JAVA_HOME and Path environment variables.

Procedure

  1. Find the JRE installation home directory.

    Example: /usr/lib/jvm/jre1.8.0_65

  2. Export it in the JAVA_HOME environment variable.

    Example:

    export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/jre1.8.0_65
    export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
  3. Add these lines at the end of the user profiles in the ~/.profile file or, as a superuser, at the end of the global profiles in the /etc/profile file.
  4. Log on again.
