JDeveloper 12c (12.1.2.0.0) Installation Guide, 36 Pages
http://docs.oracle.com/middleware/1212/jdev/OJDIG/index.html

Section 1.3:

The generic installer ( jdev_suite_121200.jar) can be used to install Oracle JDeveloper Studio on any platform.

To use this installer, you must have the required JDK installed on your system.

Operating SystemJDeveloperADF
Microsoft Windows 7, 8 (64bit)Oracle JDK 1.7 Update 15+ (64bit)Oracle JDK 1.7 Update 15+ (64bit)

I assume the " + " sign means update 15 " or higher ".

So, Logged in as Administrator.

Opened browser at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

And Downloaded Java SE JDK Update 40, jdk-7u40-windows-x64.exe

Ran / double clicked the .exe to execute it.

Edited the System PATH variable to include C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_40\bin

Verified JDK 7 Update 40 is in the path...

>java -version

java version "1.7.0_40"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_40-b43)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.0-b56, mixed mode)

Go to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/jdev/downloads/index.html

Download JDeveloper 12c (12.1.2.0.0)'s Generic ( platform independent ) Installer.

file name = jdev_suite_121200.jar       size = 1,878,404 KB

Open a Command Prompt Window.

Go to downloads directory.

> java -jar jdev_suite_121200.jar

Extracting files...............................................................

This installer must be executed using a Java Development Kit (JDK)

but C:\Program Files\Java\jre7 is not a valid JDK.

The Oracle Universal Installer failed. Exiting.


I don't get it.   Hmmm.

    Either ( or both ) of your helps are helpful.

    That is...

    • changing step # 3...

              FROM: Using command prompt, navigate to the directory where you downloaded the installation program.

              TO :     Using command prompt, navigate to the directory where you downloaded the installation program or %JAVA_HOME%\bin

    AND

    • changing step # 4's For Example : ...

              FROM: " \home\Oracle\jdk7_15\jdk1.7.0_15\bin\java -jar jdev_suite_121200.jar

              TO :        Downloads>   "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_40\bin\java"  -jar      jdev_suite_121200.jar

                       Or...

                            bin>               java   -jar    C:\Users\user\Downloads\jdev_suite_121200.jar

    However, the correct answer is for Oracle to either change the Install Guide as described here

    ( or change the generic installer to do what the Install Guide currently says ).

    And since Oracle has no process in place to facilitate correct answers, I'm not clicking "Correct Answer" buttons ( just the helpful buttons ).

    Uninstall the JDK.

    "The Windows and Linux complete installs include the required JDK."

    Oracle JDeveloper Software

    Instead of just using

    java -jar ...

    Specify the java.exe file from the jdk\bin folder.

    If you have another Java installed,  e.g. 1.6.0 you can try to run the installer oui on this and select the target jdk later in the installation process.

    @dvohra21 the op clearly stated that he installed the jdk 1.7.0_40 before trying to install the software.

  • Dvohra :

    My post quotes from the installation guide.

    Where are you quoting from ?

    PopeyeTheSailor

  • TimoHahn :

    I deleted all of my JDKs .

    Then I deleted all C:\Program Files\Java sub-directories ( so that there are no old files there ).

    Then I installed the Java SE JDK Update 40.

    I left all the options at their defaults.

    None of my System nor User Variable point to a " jre " directory.

    The JDK u40 installer prompts for a location and defaults at C:\Program Files\Java\jre7

    I accepted the default location.

    Have you tried to start the installer using the Java from the jdk, not the jre?

    Try

    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_40\bin\java -jar jdev_suite_121200.jar

    Timo

  • NOTE:  The JDK 7 Update 40 installs under C:\Program Files\Java .

    However, under my C:\Program Files (x86)\Java directory, there is a directory named " jre6 " and

    it has today's date stamped on there.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java>dir

    Directory of C:\Program Files (x86)\Java

    10/23/2010  11:45 AM    <DIR>          .
    10/23/2010  11:45 AM    <DIR>          ..
    10/06/2013  01:34 PM    <DIR>          jre6
                   0 File(s)              0 bytes
                   3 Dir(s)  392,843,005,952 bytes free

    I don't know why it has today's date on there.

    Perhaps FireFox requires a 32 bit JRE6 and FireFox put it there.

    Just a guess... I really don't know ( or remember ).

  • A friend suggested using double quotes around "Program Files".

    Maybe this error message will shed some light on whatever the problem is.

  • Dvohra :

    I do not see your quote anywhere on the downloads page.

    I think you are thinking about the " Platform Specific "   /   *.exe installers.

    My post is regarding the " Generic (Platform Independent) "   /   *.jar installer.
