4.2.2 Manually Removing the Oracle JDeveloper Home

If you selected No on the warning screen during deinstallation, you must manually remove your JDEV_HOME directory and all sub-directories. For example, if your JDEV_HOME directory is /home/Oracle/, then on a Linux or UNIX operating system run the following command:

cd /home/Oracle/
rm -rf JDEV_HOME

On a Windows operating system, if your JDEV_HOME directory is C:\Oracle\JDEV_HOME, use a file manager window and navigate to the C:\Oracle\ directory, then right-click on the JDEV_HOME folder and select Delete.
