Replacing JDK of JDeveloper 11.1.1.7 on 64 bit Oracle Linux 6

As mentioned yesterday, I installed Oracle SOA/BPM Suite 11g PS6 yesterday. It was on Oracle Linux 6 Update 3 (still have to update to Update 4).

Today I installed the accompanying JDeveloper 11.1.1.7 on the same machine. Everything went fine, except that apparently the installer failed to bring up a graphical UI.

Jdeveloper can then be started with


$JDEV_HOME/jdeveloper/jdev/bin/jdev
Where in my case in installed jdeveloper in:
$JDEV_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/jdeveloper/11.1.1.7

Doing so, to my surprice, I ran into the following exception:
[oracle@darlin-vce-db bin]$ ./jdev

Nice!
Jdeveloper comes with it's own JVM. It's installed in $JDEV/jdk160_24. And is (as guessed) the following version:
[oracle@darlin-vce-db 11.1.1.7]$ cd jdk160_24/bin/
[oracle@darlin-vce-db bin]$ ./java -version
java version "1.6.0_24"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_24-b50)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 19.1-b02, mixed mode)

Apparenlty it's 32 bit. On this machine I earlier installed the 64 Oracle/Sun Hotspot JDK in
[oracle@darlin-vce-db bin]$ set |grep JAVA_HOME
JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_43
Checking it's version will get:
[oracle@darlin-vce-db bin]$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_43"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_43-b01)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.14-b01, mixed mode)
To solve the exception above, I changed the jdev.conf in $JDEV_HOME/jdeveloper/jdev/bin to use my own 64-bit JDK.
#
# Directive SetJavaHome is not required by default, except for the base
# install, since the launcher will determine the JAVA_HOME.  On Windows
# it looks in ..\..\jdk, on UNIX it first looks in ../../jdk. If no JDK
# is found there, it looks in the PATH.
#
#SetJavaHome /u01/app/oracle/jdeveloper/11.1.1.7/jdk160_24
SetJavaHome  /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_43/
So find the SetJavaHome directive at the top and replace it with the path to your own. Apparently you should also be able to use JRockit with JDeveloper. Would be a nice try. Although I have to try if, for instance, the compiler works, but with the above change, JDeveloper started up fine.
