    SQL Developer can't recognize the JDK version


      Hi guys


      I am trying to run SQL Developer in my Fedora. It used to run without any issues until my openjdk was updated to the newest version in Fedora. The old SQL Developer is not supported by this openjdk so I downloaded a new version of SQL Developer and installed it. When I run the SQL developer from the terminal I get the error "SQL Developer can't recognize the JDK version".


      SQL Developer version



      Java -version

      openjdk version "1.8.0_45"

      OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_45-b13)

      OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.45-b02, mixed mode)


      My openjdk is located at




      I have added the above location to /opt/sqldeveloper/sqldeveloper/bin/sqldeveloper.conf


      Set JavaHome /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-

      Set SkipJ2SDKCheck true


      What could be wrong? Has anyone fixed this issue? Any help would be much appreciated!
