With the Java elective package or Oracle JDK installed, combining one of the subsequent lines to your ~/.bash_profile file will set the environment variable respectively.

export JAVA_HOME="$(/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.6)"

or

export JAVA_HOME="$(/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.7)"

or

export JAVA_HOME="$(/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.8)"
