RC4 Java Options stack
« on: April 06, 2015, 04:08:24 pm »

I was having problems getting Slick to work correctly with Java and JDK source / symbols.
I started by uninstalling all Java stuff from my machine, and ensuring that ProgramFiles\Java was deleted.

Then I installed the JRE and JDK

Then I started Slick RC2.
Slick complained about the JDK not being available.
Slick was using the JDK from:
   C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_31
but the new JDK was installed to
   C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_40\

In JavaOptions I updated "JDK Installation directory".
Then when I tried to update "Compiler Name" by clicking the "..."
I got this SlickStack

Taking a look.  I haven't reproduced the crash yet, but I do see why it was picking the wrong JDK when there was no JDK path set.  (The short version is it's supposed to pick the latest version it finds in the registry, but there's a bug that makes it pick the older entry for the un-installed JDK).
