if you want to change the ini file then do:
-vm C:\pathtoJDK\bin\javaw.exe

or replace the path with %JAVA_HOME%

i have to open eclipse.ini file and replace something else with


-vm C:\pathtoJDK\bin\javaw.exe

what it meant by default jre or jdk option as far as eclipse is concerned.



What does it has by default.

please advise.

I would expect it to default to what you have defined in JAVA_HOME.
