You can put them anywhere you like. All you need to do is ensure that
eclipse.ini references the JVM you've chosen.

How I do it...

I don't like to use the same JRE that my OS is using. So, I download my
own JDK (which apparently is what you've done). I set my installation up
like so:

C:\Users\russ\dev\jdk1.7.0_25
C:\Users\russ\dev\eclipse

In eclipse.ini, I insert the following line prior to the -vmargs option:

-vm
C:\Users\russ\dev\jdk1.7.0_25\bin\javaw.exe

Make sure the word-width of your Eclipse- and JDK downloads match, to
wit: both 64-bit or 32-bit, but not a mixture.

Hope this helps; best of luck.
