Not sure I understand the question.
Simulators run using a specific level of OS. If you need a different level of OS, then download a different Simulator.
The only relationship between Simulators and JRE is the level used in the JRE used to develop the app. It must not be a later OS level.
If I have not answered the question, please ask again.
Finally, Can you please use a smaller font?

I use Amazon for hosting. While interactiing with the Amazon website, I was promted to upgrade to the latest version of Java, JRE 7u5. So i did.
My signature tool then stopped working. Some API's were signed and some not, stalled waiting for a repsonse from the Code Signing Servers. I then configured eclipse to run using JDK 1.6u32. This resolved my Signature Tool issue.
Seeing how sensitive the Signature Tool is to a JRE change, I was wondering if Simulators have a similar sensitivity, thus requireing a specific JRE to run in.

Sorry, my mistake. I thought by JRE you meant the OS level specific environment that you download with Eclipse. Not the Java JRE.
Your question makes more sense now.
I might be wrong, but I believe that the Simulators all include their own JVM, If you look in the directory you will see a Jvm.dll, and it is this that runs the Simulator I think. So in short, because they come with their own JVM, there is no dependency for the Simulators to have Java installed.
I have installed Simulators on machines that I don't think had java installed at all, which sort of confirms this.
