Adding a folder of jar files to my path

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – Unix newbie here. I have java tools that I need to use. The tools are in a folder full of jar files. I wanted to add this folder to my path, for the obvious reasons, but after I edit my .bash_profile to include the new folder in the $PATH variable, and source it, it doesn't work. I also tried logging out, and logging back in, and that didn't work either. I just keep getting the error message "Unable to access jarfile .jar" Any help is appreciated. Cheers. (HowTos)
