relink directories

I installed a new java version on a suse linux box. I see directory java is linked to the old SunJava 1.3 version. How can I relink it to the j2re1.4.2_15 directory so it will use the new java version without me having to hardcode the directory. Thanks.

lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           12 Jul  1  2005 java -> SunJava2-1.3
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           12 Jul  1  2005 java2 -> SunJava2-1.3
Test:/usr/lib # ls -lrt | grep j2re1*
drwxrwxr-x    8 root     root         4096 Jan  8 17:08 j2re1.4.2_15
Test:/usr/lib #

I'm typing the link command but it's not changing the current link from SunJava to the new java version.. Do I need to unlink the java directory first and then link them back up. Thanks.

I guess the real question is how do I change the environment so it uses the new java version from the jr2e directory. I can't find how it sets up the java environement in Suse 8. Thanks.

Probably should do this, but I got on another box so I would mess up our man test box and figured this out... I just rm java and java2... remade the links with the new java, one minor directory change and all is ok I guess.. Thanks.
