Installing SQL Dev 4.0 (JRE 1.6 and JDK 1.7)

I’m in an environment where our 11i version of EBS (I know we need to upgrade) still requires JRE 1.6 to open Oracle Forms.  Being an SQL Developer fan (listen to my podcast here), I decided to download and install SQL Dev 4.0.  Anyone that’s been following this knows that the latest release requires JDK …

Oracle Open World 2013 – Wrap up (#OOW13)
