1. I have been using different versions of Eclipse Java EE IDE for about 3 years.
2. I use it primarily with Maven projects and testng.
3. Since I am newly registered I am posting my question here.
4. I have downloaded Eclipse Java EE IDE v2018-09 since I understand it should work with Java 11.
5. I have installed the Java 11 Support for Eclipse 2018-09 (4.9) from the Eclipse Marketplace.
6. I have installed the JDK 11 from Oracle's site.
a. However, I discovered that the JDK 11 does not include a JRE which is required for Eclipse to work.
b. This presents a problem since all previous versions of Eclipse have worked with JAVA_HOME path as the JDK. And the JRE has been included in the JDK.
c. Since I uninstalled my older JDK and have JDK 11 installed, Eclipse will not open. Java Virtual Machine Launcher displays "Error: Could not find Java SE Runtime Environment".

I searched the forums but have found nothing on this topic.
Is there any guidance on how to get Eclipse Java EE IDE 2018-09 (4.9) to work with JDK 11?

Understanding that a JRE older than 11 is not going to run what I develop with JDK 11, I built my own JRE within the JDK folder. So I can now run what I build in Eclipse.

C:\Java\jdk-11.0.1\jre\bin>java -version
java version "11.0.1" 2018-10-16 LTS
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.1+13-LTS)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11.0.1+13-LTS, mixed mode)

However, it is annoying that Oracle has decided to shoot itself in the foot.
