SQL Developer installation with jre and without jre

Hello,
I would like to install the SQL Developer which has the jre prepackaged, then I need to have jre 1.6,0_37 installed, so that I can run another application.
When I have neither of the jre installed, I can run SQL Developer x64.  

When I install jre 1.6.0_37, SQL Developer x64 picks up this jre, as is shown on the SQL Developer's About/properties java values.  I can't edit these values.

Is there a particular method to install SQL Developer that will use its bundled jre?

Hi!

first of all sqldeveloper needs jdk not jre. But since it's working I guess you have that installed.

You can change the java home in C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\sqldeveloper\??????\product.conf
Change parameter "SetJavaHome" to your preferred location.

Regards!

Go here --> C:\Users\<your user>\AppData\Roaming\sqldeveloper\1.0.0.0.0\product.conf

set SetJavaHome  to whatever Java location you want

Eg.

SetJavaHome C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_25

paquicuba and ora-600, this is my objective; to have SQL Developer run with its bundled jdk/jre (the version it needs).  Then have jre 1.6.0_37 installed in my system, for another application.
When I look at the SQL Developer's "About/properties" settings I see that it has jre 1.6.0_37 listed.  I assume because it is listed that it is using it.
I'll go make the changes you suggest, yet I do not believe this will allow me to have both jre to work with.

If you've downloaded the correct version of SQL Developer X64 in your case, it comes with JDK kit. At startup of SQLDeveloper.exe, you will get prompted for Java. Simply, click on the browse button and drill down to where JDK is and in the bin directory is where java.exe is. Click ok and SQL Developer should resume launch.

If you need more details on how to setup, go to Oracle OTN site and watch tutorial on SQL Developer. There is no point for me to paste screen shots, as they are already available on Oracle OTN Site.

Good luck!

mohammadzahid, thank you for your response.  This is what I am using;
C:\Oracle\sqldeveloper-4.0.3.16.84-x64\sqldeveloper
I'll go look at the tutorials, yet would like to say that the window which is shown, does not have a "prompt for java;"
Unsupported Java version

I now feel like a fool, because yesterday I did not find this path;
C:\Users\wmartinez\AppData\Roaming\sqldeveloper\1.0.0.0.0
And so I configured the "SetJavaHome via the "Environment Variables" which did not work.
Allow me to modify this file, then I'll get back to you guys.  thanks
