# Set Oracle environment variables

This task describes how to set the environment variables you need for loading your Oracle application with UFT Oracle Add-in support. For all the environments, you need to set one or more environment variables with the path name of the Oracle Add-in support classes folder.

## Sun Plug-in 1.4.1 and Oracle JInitiator 1.3.1.x

Set the _JAVA_OPTIONS environment variable as follows:

```-Xbootclasspath/a:"<UFT installation folder>\bin\java_shared\classes";"<UFT installation folder>\bin\java_sharedclasses\jasmine.jar"
```

The above variables should appear on one line (no newline separators).

You can also use short paths in this command. For example:

`-Xbootclasspath/a:C:\PROGRA~2\Micro Focus\UNIFIE~1\bin\JAVA_S~1\classes;C:\PROGRA~2\HPE\UNIFIE~1\bin\JAVA_S~1\classes\jasmine.jar`

In this example, UFT is installed in the default installation folder (C drive, Program Files) on a Windows 7 computer. PROGRA~2 denotes the Program Files (x86) folder, which is the Program Files folder on 64-bit operating systems.

## Oracle JInitiator 1.1.x

Set the _classload_hook environment variable to jvmhook.
