And I do a proper custom installation too so I can pick a proper path; I install the JDK/runtime in the same spot always so tools don't have a reason to get confused. Its basic computer 101 stuff that was common knowledge a decade ago, but that basic computer education seems to have been lost.
I see, I've istalled it from Oracle, not from java.com. Never realized that difference. The advantage of update procedure is that you don't need to modify any system relevant settings, for example the default path to java for netbeans. Each time I download and install a new update from Oracle, new folder for jdk will be created. For example I tried to update my java on my Mac after last security warning, but my netbeans on mac doesn't see any changes, also new version of JavaFX (2.2) is not reachable. Next time I try it to install from java.com. Thanks for the explanation.
