Work with Java 8 and Java 11 in the same machine

I understand that Bamboo is still not compatible with Java 11. 


I have some software in my server that requires Java 11 to work, but I also have Bamboo in the same server. I know you can install both. Java 8 and Java 11 and keep them at the same time...


For the JAVA_HOME variable (Windows Server 2012), I see I can add multiple entries, but that won't necessarily mean that Bamboo will find the compatible one in the list?


It there a setup or arrangement I can do in my server so that Bamboo detects there's a Java 8 and uses it, and the other Software uses Java 11? (I can't edit anything in the other software, so the default pointers/variables must direct to Java 11 so that the other software detects it).
