$JAVA_HOME/bin/java vs [[PATH]] java

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
Something appears to have changed recently with post-install? The postinstaller
now insists on a java in my PATH instead of using the one in $JAVA_HOME/bin.
Yes, my PATH was "mis-set" lacking the java (because it was a cron job), but my
JAVA_HOME was set. Why doesn't it use the one from JAVA_HOME in the absence of a
java in the PATH?
Created an attachment (id=611) [details]
log file from automatic make
This shows that in the "make install" step it died on missing java. It did not
have any such problem during the "make" itself, though.
It looks like the trouble is in the GRAM setup script, not in the postinstall
It's a feature of ant that it looks in JAVA_HOME/bin in addition to the path,
not of the installer itself.
I made the change to that if java is not found in the PATH, but JAVA_HOME is
set, then append
JAVA_HOME/bin to the PATH. This should solve the problem.
