I just installed hudson on Ubuntu, and I'm a bit confused by the general configuration options.

So, under Manage Hudson -> Configure System

You have the option to set JDK and Maven location. But what exactly do I do? I've already defined these variables in the bash.bashrc file and added them to the PATH variable.

Do I add them here again, or is my previous definition enough?

Your previous definition might be enough. However, you can define more than one java or maven version in Hudson. Works like a charm. If the number of your projects increase the chances that you need different Java version (e.g java 5 vs. 6 or openjdk vs sun), or different maven installations or different ant installations will increase.
