I am working as a Java Developer. I am trying to get the Java 7 as the default version on my machine, running Mac OS X 10.9.3. When I run:
java -version

I get:
java version "1.6.0_65"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_65-b14-462-11M4609)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.65-b04-462, mixed mode)

When I run:
javac -version

I get:
javac 1.6.0_65

When I go into System Preferences --> Java --> Update, I see:
Your system has the recommended version of Java.
Java 8 Update 05.

I have some questions:

Why does my Java Control Panel claim I have Java 8, but my work in the terminal (when checking my Java version) says otherwise?

I just downloaded the .dmg file for Java SE 7 from Oracle's site and installed, though it's nowhere to be seen. Where could this be found on my machine?

Thanks & Regards
