hmm. Which JAVA_HOME did you tried? Following options of 5761JV1 are for
Option 8: Java 50 32bit. JAVA_HOME=
Option 9: Java 50 64bit, JAVA_HOME=
Option 11: Java 60 32bit, JAVA_HOME=
OPtion 12: Java 60 64bit. JAVA_HOME=

You can double check those options on your system. Please refer for more

Error launching java ... unable to open jars.cfg

Has anyone ever seen this before?

I just installed Java6 (classic, 32bit & 64 bit options) on a 6.1 system.
I also applied the latest Java group PTF.

When I try to verify the java version, I get this output...

/QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/JavaVM/jdk60/32bit/bin/java -version
getBootClasspath failed to open file
java.home=/QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/JavaVM/jdk50/32bit/lib/jars.cfg - A file
or directory in the path name does not exist.
JVMJ9VM015W Initialization error for library jclscar_24(2):
getBootClasspath returned NULL
Unable to create Java Virtual Machine.

At this point I can't get ANY JVM's to run. I get similar errors
regardless of what JAVA_HOME value I use.
