Follow-up Comment #9, bug #53520 (project octave):

Rik - personally I think the JAVA_HOME solution will be a lot more work and
there is not enough time before this release. JAVA_VERSION has been in place
in the Windows Java setup code since Octave 3.8 when the Java code was first
merged into Octave, so it's nothing new.

If someone is going to pursue the JAVA_HOME solution on Windows, please take a
look at my notes and proof-of-concept on bug #40111, and discuss on bug
#53389. It should be possible to write some platform-independent m-file code
that explores the directory structure under JAVA_HOME to find the shared
library that Octave loads.

But I do agree we should resolve this bug for 4.4, by looking for different
registry key layouts for different possible Java versions.
