Installing AndroidStudio 2.0 on OS X El Capitan: if I install JRE 7 from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre7-downloads-1880261.html, I will not receive Public Updates; if I install JRE 8, Android Studio complains that it cannot use secure connection to receive upgrades:
Is there a way to convince AS that JRE 8 is not JRE 6? If impossible, which compromise is preferable: downgrade to JRE 7 and establish secure connection for Android Studio upgrades, or keep the latest JRE and wait for Android Studio fix?
From the documentation, by default Android Studio is launched from java 6: http://tools.android.com/tech-docs/configuration/osx-jdk
As it is mentioned you can export an env variable to indicate Android Studio what jdk to use :
In order to keep this env variable accessible from the GUI, you can add the following line to your ~/.profile file :
launchctl setenv STUDIO_JDK /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk<version>.jdk
Hope it helps.
