As you know Eclipse itself needs a Java JDK to run. So I am NOT talking about developing Java programs inside Eclipse but the JDK for Eclipse itself.

Assume now I want (temporarily) switch the used JDK version/installation for Eclipse.
Can I simply close Eclipse then modify the path entry in file eclipse.ini and restart Eclipse?

Or is there any other place where the responsible JDK for Eclipse is/needs to be specified?

Eclipse looks at Eclipse.ini first. If it doesn't find a jvm entry, it looks in the path. Yes, modifying the path entry in eclipse.ini should be good.
