I've got an Oracle installation that I'm using on my Windows XP workstation to run tests against. I'm not using Oracle's Java support; is there any way to disable it? Or is that a good idea?

My main reason is that Oracle's Java process eats up a lot of memory, so if there are good reasons not to do this, I can live with it.

You can uninstall the JVM if you don't need it. You can also set the java pool size to zero which should also accomplish what you want.
