How does this property work (how do you set it and what do you set it to?)

Where is this documented? All I know is that on Windows it is semicolon seperated.

I appologise if this should be obvious but I googled it and only saw the JREIngo.java that references it.

It can be set as a system property -Doomph.jreinfo.extra.search.path=... and each child folder of each folder specified on this path will be tested if it is a JDK, i.e., has a bin folder with a javac executable. Of course you can add JREs and JDKs via the dialogs in the installer or via the preferences manually too; these are stored in ~.eclipse/org.eclipse.oomph.jreinfo/* so are reusable across all installers and installations.

Can we just add it to defaults.properties in ~.eclipse/org.eclipse.oomph.jreinfo/*? Or how would it be done? Any file name that ends in properties?

The one I added manually is stored in extra.txt just as a line "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-11.0.5". Perhaps you should explain your goal. E.g., I'm not sure how you know what JREs are even available on any particular machines unless you put them there via some task at a know path...

My goal is to understand how it works. Then I will be better tooled to decide how I want to use it. All I knew was that if I added the jdk to the userprofile the detection was automatic. I want to add it elsewhere and hence would like to understand how it works. So, if I add it to extras.txt I just add the path, not the property? I presume there is no doc on this.

I would suggest adding one manually via the dialog in the installer or via the Java Virtual Machine preferences---all use the same dialog---and look at how the properties are stored. Of course you can setup an Oomph environment and can run things under debug control as well...
