I am using OSX Mountain Lion, and I am trying to install Glassfish Server EE. I have also installed Java7 from oracle. When I check for my java_home by this line

/usr/libexec/java_home

I get this result:

/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_17.jdk/Contents/Home

When I start to install GFish Server I says:

Using the user defined JAVA_HOME : /usr Entering setup...

Unable to find a $JAVA_HOME at "/usr", continuing with system-provided Java...

Can someone please help me with this?

It says it is continuing does it install? If so what is the issue? Do have a JAVA_HOME environment variable? –  Mark Mar 28 '13 at 14:09
