Yes. When you set your classpath for the jdk, you were actually pointing it at THAT set of classes. If you now want to use a DIFFERENT set of classes (perhaps a different version), you need to download it and change your classpath to point at THAT one. Or, of course, when you fire up your application, if you have a bat file you can point the classpath at the desired JRE (the jar files in the JRE) just before invoking the application itself.
