Install JDeveloper on OS X with JDK7

The info is taken from this post:

Thanks to Justin, it saved quite some efforts.

1 If you do not have Apple Java 1.6, download it here (Java for OS X 2014-001).
2 Start the JDeveloper installer using Apple Java 1.6.
3 $(/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.6)/bin/java -jar ~/Downloads/jdevstudio11119install.jar
4 Follow the screens and when you reach the portion of the installer that asks for the JDK, point it to your JDK 1.7 location. In my case, I have used JDK 7u80.
5 /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_80.jdk/Contents/Home

6 Complete the installation.
