running into some sort of situation with 2 jvms installed and eclipse (actually a RCP app)

Issue is that for some reason Eclipse seems to be picking the latest jdk (1.Cool of the two instead of the _several times configured 1.7. Work-around is to remove the 1.8.

When having both and despite trying to pin it to 1.7 jstack shows it to go into 1.8.

It's set in:

- JAVA_HOME, JDK_HOME are both set to the definite 1.7 filesystem home, done with /usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.7 for good form.

- The app's .ini has
-vmargs
-vm <...>Studio/jdk/bin
(tried with and without /bin)

- the apps .product execution environment is set to the same 1.7

- the buildtime is firmly 1.7 including build path, compiler setting

- the buildtime run/debug environments are != 1.8


Thanks in advance for any hints

Try putting the -vm line and its value line before the -vmargs line. Is there a reason it shouldn't be used with 1.8?

tried to put it before the args, and various paths, it perseveres with 1.8, 1.7 being the overall base environment.
