And to make your setting update proof, I'd like to emphasize the following
paragraph from my blog:

Hint: while the exact path changes with the update of Java, there are often
some simplified links available. For example on Fedora Linux:
is also available as /usr/lib/jvm/java/jre/lib/amd64/server The first link
changes with each Java update, the second one stays stable between updates.


This, or a similar link exists also on CentOS.
