Subject Re: JavaHome vs. JAVA_HOME
Date Mon, 16 Oct 2000 21:45:52 GMT
I have never, ever heard that SUN was using JavaHome for an environment
variable.  The common convention is use use all uppercase for environment
variables... perhaps if you are using windows, it doesn't care about case,
but with respect to UN*X it does.
