you can check your version by typing "java -version" at command prompt. As far as JBuilder is concerned, I believe you can choose which JVM for a project in the project settings.

So if you create a new Project (I'm looking at JBuilder 2005 Ent.), press next->, there is a option that says JDK:.

My JBuilder 2005 uses 1.4.2. It should handle newer versions just fine.

JBuilder 2005 installs with its own JDK which is 1.4.2.
You should not try to change that included JVM for another as it may not start.
You CAN tell it to use a different JDK for compiling and running programs you create using JBuilder, using the project options (default or program specific).
This can be both newer and older versions.

The latest can always be obtained from the Source: http://java.sun.com
