I just install
tomcat7 on my
Ubuntu 12.04 using:
sudo apt get-install tomcat7
Immediately afterwards I notice that although $CATALINA_HOME and $CATALINA_BASE are set in the script
/etc/init.d/tomcat7, they are not exported on my shell. I.e.
printenv | grep CATALINA yields nothing.
So the question is: should I bother or is it a good practice to also set
$CATALINA_BASE in my
.bashrc and what would be the benefit?
