GUI Not In Local Language Using Version 1.5.1

(Doc ID 730530.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 27, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle SQL Developer - Version: 1.5.1 to 1.5.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.


SQL Developer verion upon install by default takes into account the locale of the machine.
For example , if installed on on an MS Windows machine with local settings set to German, the menus of SQL Developer would appear in German.

But with SQL Developer the menus on a similar machine appear in English.
Setting ...sqldeveloper\bin\sqldeveloper.conf to include the following line does not change anything:
AddVMOption -Duser.language=DE


Installed SQL Developer 1.5.1 build MAIN 5440
