Editing PATH and JAVA_HOME variables in Mac OS X

Step 1: Open up a Terminal window (this is in your Applications/Utilites folder by default)

Step 2: Enter the follow commands:

touch ~/.bash_profile; open ~/.bash_profile

This will open the .bash_profile file in Text Edit (the default text editor included on your system). The file allows you to customize the environment your user runs in.

Step 3: Add the following line to the end of the file adding whatever additional directory you want in your path:


export JAVA_HOME=/Applications/Kony_Studio/Kony/Java/jdk1.7.0_67.jdk/Contents/Home
