Check the IBM docs and determine where IBM expects it to reside.

Then write a program to check for the Java binaries.

subject: Automatically determining where Java lives on a particular

The boss just proposed what sounds like a wonderful idea to me:

Since our biggest problem in setting up Tomcat seems to be figuring out where Java (and specifically, the version we need for Tomcat) lives on a particular box (we currently expect it to be in /QIBM/PRODDATA/JAVA400/JDK16, which isn't always where it really is), why not automatically figure out where it is?

But that raises the question of how that might be accomplished.

Anybody have any ideas?
