That is indeed where Java lives, but there is no file called "javaw"
in that directory. Even more surprising, <find -name "javaw"> doesn't
find anything on the system. (I ran that as root, from /).

What does one do?

It's a typo. Just delete the w. It should be .../jre/bin/java


I must not have been clear. There is noplace where "javaw" is visible
except in the error message. I don't know that it is a typo; "javaw" is a
normal Java executable. I don't know why there is none on my system.

If you're thinking of Java Web Start, the command is javaws. The term -
javaw - does nothing.
