For many years we’ve offered a download for Windows users that included an Oracle JDK embedded in the software package.
Starting today, we’re now offering the same for both hardware chipsets offered by Apple
My friends with ARM architecture equipped Macs are telling me that SQLDev is easier 4x faster now that it’s using an ARM JDK.
No more complicated ‘How to’ guides for SQLDev and Macs
Here’s all you need to do now:
- download the appropriate APP
- in Finder, drag to Applications
- launch it
It will use the Java Home embedded in your SQLDeveloper app.
You can see this if you open up the Application properties.
My Mac Mini is from 2018, so it’s an ‘old Intel’ chip based piece of hardware. However, I’ve had several internal folks with fancy new M1’s tell me the ARM version of the download fires right up 🙂
For all OS updates, there’s a single bug fix as well
When creating/editing tables, if you tried to go into the advanced column properties, you’d get a nasty Java error. That’s fixed now.
