Mac OS X Yosemite: Java and Android developer

If you did not upgrade yet, you will probably do so within days, here are my observations so far.




Java 

When you upgrade to Yosemite your previous Java is still there:

$ java -version
java version "1.8.0_20-ea"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_20-ea-b05)

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.20-b05, mixed mode)

but Apple open dialogs that you have to install older Java, I am probably missing a symbolic link from what the default installation should be.

Java 1.6 from Apple:

IntelliJ IDEA


The software says my Android SDK is missing.
