Force XMind to use Java 7
Maybe it’s not the best but I like it :) And it has a free version, which is perfect for my needs.
I prefer to use the official Java version that I download directly from Oracle. However, I noticed that XMind tends to use some older versions of Java (OpenJDK, etc.). How to tell XMind which Java to use?
After starting XMind, you can verify which Java it uses. Go to: Help -> About XMind, and click on the button Installation Details. Finally choose the tab Configuration. Here find the line “
-vm” and check its value in the next line. This is the virtual machine XMind has found.
xmind.ini and add this line to the top:
In my case “
/opt/java/bin/java -version” produces the following output:
java version "1.7.0_21" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_21-b11) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.21-b01, mixed mode)
