[root@Jenkins_Server ~]# find /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8* | head -n 3
# To set JAVA_HOME it permanently update your .bash_profile
[root@Jenkins_Server ~]# vi ~/.bash_profile
[root@Jenkins_Server ~]# java -version

# Result, The output should be something like this
[root@Jenkins_Server ~]# find /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8* | head -n 3

[root@Jenkins_Server ~]# cat ~/.bash_profile
# .bash_profile
# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
         . ~/.bashrc
# User specific environment and startup programs
export PATH
