Designer 4.7 on MacOS and Java issue

I installed Designer 4.7 on my Mac and when I am trying to lunch it...

"To open “Designer” you need to install the legacy Java*SE*6 runtime."

Seriously!???

That's an Eclipse issue for a long time. You can work around it by

a) installing Java 6 from Apple so it is available when Designer is launched
first time. You can then uninstall Java 6 again, subsequent launches should
just work.
b) edit info.plist of your current system-wide installed java (e.g. a JDK 😎 as

Re: Designer 4.7 on MacOS and Java issue

Thank you!

I modified /Applications/Designer/Designer.app/Contents/Info.plist

and added:
<string>-vm</string><string>/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/zulu-11.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/java</string>

....hmm, I think it has a reason Designer ships with a JDK 8, though. Did you
try pointing it to the JDK that comes with Designer?

Re: Designer 4.7 on MacOS and Java issue

bananix:bin mjuricek$ pwd
/Applications/Designer/jre/bin
bananix:bin mjuricek$ ./java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_192"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (Zulu 8.33.0.1-macosx) (build 1.8.0_192-b01)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (Zulu 8.33.0.1-macosx) (build 25.192-b01, mixed mode)

and this Java did not work for me 😞

Re: Designer 4.7 on MacOS and Java issue

OK, so at the end this java works: /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.8.0.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/java
Designer on Zulu is crashing...

then you have run Designer as admin because Designer is trying to copy some packages to Java location.
cd /Applications/Designer/Designer.app/Contents/MacOS
sudo ./Designer


and clink on "OK" if Designer asks you to copy missing jar files.

then, change back an ownership of the Designer installation:
sudo chown -R mjuricek:admin /Applications/Designer/

With Designer 4.72 they're changing Java, I wonder if this still happens with the new version.

Sorry, I used wrong title of the post. I installed 4.7.2. of course. I had no issues like that before.
