I used to have JBuilder on my PC and my system was using the jvm under it ( C:\JBuilderX\jdk1.4\jre\lib\i386\jvm.cfg ). Lately i deleted this directory and using jdk from 'BEA' ( which is installed under C:\bea\jdk141_02 ) and want my system to start using the jvm under BEA and not under JBUILDER. Can anyone show me how i can switch the jvm in my PC ?

The BEA jvm is under C:\bea\jdk141_02\jre\lib\i386\jvm.cfg.

You probabely need to set the value of environment variable JAVA_HOME to the new location.

I think you could use Java_Home system property or using Operating system platform system registry...
As an example: for Windows operating system you could change JavaSoft Registry Group through the following steps:
1. Start->Run
2. type regedit.exe
3. click on Edit Menu
4. Choose Find
5. search for "JavaSoft"
You will find all java virtual machine prperties...

In Windows, you should typically use the Add/Remove Programs option in the Control Panel rather than just deleting a directory. In theory, this will cleanup the Windows registry so you don't have to do it manually.
