    SQL Developer does not use latest JDK version installed - OS X 10.9


      Hi everyone,


      I have both Oracle JDK 1.7 and 1.8 installed on my Mac. The following command correctly shows the latest in place.


      $ /usr/libexec/java_home
      $ echo $JAVA_HOME


      However, SQL Developer always use the JDK 1.7.



      Of course, I can explicitly specify the above JDK 1.8 home into "~/.sqldeveloper/4.0.0/product.conf" with "SetJavaHome", but this will require me to repeat every time I update JDK to latest version.


      Is there anyway I can tell SQL Developer to always look for the latest installed version of JDK 1.8?


      Thank you!
