How to change Java (JVM) version in Mac OS?


Recently, I had an issue to change my default JVM version in my Mac machine. I want to provide steps to change java version with Mac OS. Use below command to check current default java version:

java -version

Download required java version and install it before proceed to further.

Open terminal, and run below command:

cd /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/

Check where your java is installed, in general, you can find your java installation in the below location:

/System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines
/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/

Find the right jdk path and create a softlink as shown below: Here I am making Java 7 as default version.

rm CurrentJDK
ln -s /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_51.jdk/Contents/ CurrentJDK

What is fail-fast in java?
A fail-fast system is nothing but immediately report any failure that is likely to lead to failure. When a problem occurs, a fail-fast system fails immediately. In Java, we can find this behavior with iterators. Incase, you have called iterator on a collection object, and another thread tries to modify the collection object, then concurrent modification exception will be thrown. This is called fail-fast.
