This is wrong, /etc/environment is not a script and can not be executed with source.

echo $PATH
/root/.bash_profile
/root/.bashrc
source .bash_profile
~USERNAME/.bash_profile
/etc/skel/.bash_profile

Put the environment variables into the global /etc/environment file:

...
JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun
...
Execute "source /etc/environment" in every shell where you want the variables to be updated:

$ source /etc/environment
Check that it works:

$ echo $JAVA_HOME
$ /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun
Great, no logout needed.
