Hi Swapnil,

You need to install the version of the JDK you want to use and then set JAVA_HOME env. variable to point to it and then the Atlassian SDK will use that version of the JDK. Keep in mind that JIRA6 was dependant on java7, but JIRA7 depends on java8 and you might also need to update your Atlassian SDK if it's an older version.

If you change the setenv.sh file, you can tell it to stop using the bundled java installation and use the one you have installed.  Just make sure it's a supported version (from memory JIRA 7 must be run on Oracle Java 1.8 )
