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?

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.

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
