yeah, that's a mistake
At least 18.2 does not get the "java.lang.reflect.InaccessibleObjectException" with jdk 9 like I see when trying it with 18.1. Thanks!
is it a documentation mistake or a bundle mistake?
I've noticed that using sqldev 18.2 with the bundled jdk9 make the application crash while loading the "Real Time SQL Monitor" view (under win64 at least).
Is there any plan to update the win64 download with the correct jdk version?
I use to work on customers' workstations without administratrive privileges, so installing Java is out of the question and I always keep the zip bundle handy.
As a workaround, I edited the sqldeveloper.conf file and made the SetJavaHome option point to the sqldev 18.1 jdk location
the download and release note pages have been updated to reflect that we support either Java 8 or 9, and that we ship Java 9 with the embedded Win64 distribution
