If you are running Windows and installed the JDK in C:\jdk1.8.0_25, you would have to put the following line in your C:\autoexec.bat file.

set PATH=C:\jdk1.8.0_25\bin;%PATH%
set JAVA_HOME=C:\jdk1.8.0_25

Alternatively, you could also right-click on My Computer, select Properties, thenAdvanced, then Environment Variables. Then, you would update the PATH value and press the OK button.

On Linux, if the SDK is installed in /usr/local/jdk1.8.0_25 and you use the C shell, you would put the following code into your .cshrc file.

setenv PATH /usr/local/jdk1.8.0_25/bin:$PATH
setenv JAVA_HOME /usr/local/jdk1.8.0_25

Alternatively, if you use an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Eclipse, then it will know automatically where you have installed your Java.
