Unfortunately I can not help you, I'm also looking for a solution
The same happens on Lion 10.7.5 too.
I hope someone can help us, because this icons switch is very misleading...
No solution here either, but definitely able to reproduce the problem, and google searches led me to various .plist recommendations that didn't work, and now here to this thread. :-(
In a way I'm glad it's not just me, so hopefully the developers will read this post (they are usually very good about chasing up "EA" reported problems) and get it fixed for EA2.
I'm still seeing this with EA2. (Mac OS X 10.8.3)
Yep. Same issue here too.
FYI - I noticed the name of the app *must* be "SQLDeveloper" or it won't run. Possibly related, possibly irrelevant. ;-)
It's on our to-do list, it will get fixed.
The to-do list IS getting smaller, if that's any consolation
- Go into the package (right click and show package content)
- navigate to "SQLDeveloper.app/Contents/Resources/sqldeveloper/sqldeveloper/bin"
- open up the sqldeveloper-Darwin.conf file with your favorite editor
- add the line AddVMOption -Xdock:icon=../../../SQLDeveloperIcons.icns
and your good to go
Confirmed, this workaround worked for me.
