How to create an OCI connection in Jdev - Database Navigator

I have been trying to create an OCI connection in the database navigator using Jdev 11.1.2.3. Following these docs:

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E35521_01/user.111230/e17455/connect_work_databases.htm#OJDUG5131
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E35521_01/user.111230/e17455/connect_work_databases.htm#OJDUG2432

I'm on a 64 bit platform. So the first thing I do is set JDev to use 64bit JDK by editing the jdev.conf file i.e.
...
# Directive SetJavaHome is not required by default, except for the base
# install, since the launcher will determine the JAVA_HOME.  On Windows
# it looks in ..\..\jdk, on UNIX it first looks in ../../jdk. If no JDK
# is found there, it looks in the PATH.
#
#SetJavaHome D:\Oracle\Jdev\111230-prod\jdk160_24
SetJavaHome C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_39
...

I'll also add the parameters for JDBC driver and path to the OCI dll's.

 #For JDBC for OCI
AddVMOption -Doracle.jdbc.library=D:\Oracle\JDBC\instantclient\x86-64\11.1.0.7.0\ojdbc6.jar
AddNativeCodePath D:\Oracle\JDBC\instantclient\x86-64\11.1.0.7.0

When I start JDev, I receive a warning for the parameter AddNativeCodePath. And I'm unable to connect.

[sracanov@SRACANOV-AU D]$ jdev -verbose

It seems AddNativeCodePath is not recognised as a parameter. So I've comment out the line and start it by passing the library in that path environment variable.

[sracanov@SRACANOV-AU D]$ set path=D:\Oracle\JDBC\instantclient\x86-64\11.1.0.7.0;%path%

I've used an instance client here which you can read about the setup here.
