I'm curious about this. If JDeveloper is running on JDK 7 for example
and someone configures it to use a JDK 8 then would you have attempted
to load from the JDK 8 tools.jar in that case? As JDK 7 doesn't know
anything about 52.0 class files then I assume not.
So maybe the loading from the target tools.jar was when the target JDK
is the same or older than the version that the IDE is running? In that
case I'm curious as to whether it can be made to use
-source/-target/-Xbootclasspath instead of attempt to run the javac from
the target JDK in the same VM. On JDK 9 then you have the wonderful new
-release option to try too.
