I'm running El Capitan and
java -version produces the following:
java version "1.8.0_101" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_101-b13) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.101-b13, mixed mode)
I'm having severe slowdown problems with the h2 database console, so I want to see if going back to Java 1.6 has any effect.
I run the Java Preferences application and move 1.6 so it's at the top, but the next time I launch Java Preferences 1.8 is back up there! Even unchecking 1.8 doesn't persist -- it's rechecked on the next launch.
How does one go about selecting a particular Java version these days?
