All you need to know about me is that I never give up. I learned Java programming from 2007 and took Vendor certifications. Unknowingly I had a brain tumor for many years before being diagnosed in 2010 with an orange-sized Anaplastic Astrocytoma. I endured 4 brain surgeries, 6 weeks chemo-radiotherapy and 10 months chemotherapy before getting back to what I love in 2012 when I launched http://thejarbar.org and http://buhaugane.com

Oops 2012 and it happens again New tumor new surgery. Read about my life and support cancer (please) http://www.news24.com/MyNews24/Lack-of-brain-cancer-awareness-cost-me-Astrocytoma-20121011

AGAIN!! 2013 and diagnosed with my third tumor in as many years only more aggressive. Never giving up :)

That's a nice answer there. Thank you. I thought file permissions were coupled with processes. IOW I thought that interacting with a 'rootowned file meant that you had to belong to a root` group and the same with executables. This article was also useful in addition to your answer: help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo

@SergeyBecause for some of us, we don't just use a single system. Especially so if I am looking at getting a server for my own hosting needs and perhaps putting up a few VM's for what's excess. Besides I had to drift from aptitude when they started serving outdated packages that took months to update. How long was tomcat6 all that one could get from aptitude whilst my hosting provider had Tomcat 7? Others may just like to enjoy any version of Linux as a DIY system.
comment “Cannot locate suitable jar utility” while trying to install Oracle Java JDK
When are people going to learn that JAVA_HOME has nothing to do with being able to run Java other than being a variable which clients can use to see where Java is? A simple symbolic link of all the bin contents to the /usr/bin will get Java up on most Unixes I've tried....
