You can avoid the pop-up prompt by editing the SetJavaHome line in your ...\sqldeveloper\sqldeveloper\bin\sqldeveloper.conf file. If you use 32-bit Windows, then the value for a default 32-bit Java SE JDK 6 update 31 install should be
SetJavaHome C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_31or 64-bit Windows with 32-bit SQL Developer and 32-bit JDK:
SetJavaHome C:/Program Files (x86)/Java/jdk1.6.0_31or 64-bit Windows with 64-bit SQL Developer and 64-bit JDK:
SetJavaHome C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_31Regards,

If you're on windows, just download the SQL Developer bundle that includes the JDK. No java to install. Just download, extract, and run. Should take less than 5 minutes.
Do you have the link to SQL Bundle ? I am getting the Red Gate link only !
However, i was able to correct the path as Gary Graham explained, it was not working if it is pointing to the JAVA under the Program Files, I had to switch to Program Files (x86)
I was able to start SQL Developer, but I got a new pop up that is giving me a warning, about the JAVA installed.
I wish there is a way to attach a screen shot !

It's the very first download on this page
Would you be able to walk me through the DB connection please ?
I can not find a drop down where I can select the DB i need to connect to ?
You need to create connections first.
Look in the SQL Developer help. There is a getting started topic which contains a link to a section on creating connections.
So you have SQL Developer up and running? Congrats!
If you need help or are having issues with TNS entries not showing from your TNSNames entries, please open a new thread.
