Relode or Restart environment variables "/etc/environment" without reboot or logoff

source /etc/environment

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

echo $PATH
source .bash_profile

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

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.
