Greetings list.

I have been working on trying to get my Java_HOME variable set using 
/etc/profile, and it seems that that variables are ignored when put into 
/etc/profile or ~/.profile

Where should I set these variables for use by developers working on the 
system?

(I have been using linux too long, and have gotten used to plopping some 
executable script into /etc/profile.d . )
