      Cannot build for Android on Yosemite/El Capitan due to missing JDK6

      I took a clean install of Yosemite and installed Studio, which installed jdk7
      Then i let Studio install the Android SDK
      I created a new Hello World app in Studio and tried to build on Genymotion Android emulator

      Then i saw the following error in Studio Console

      [ERROR] Application Installer abnormal process termination. Process exit value was 1
      [ERROR] : Titanium requires JDK 1.6 when building on Mac OS X.
      [ERROR] : You can download it from http://appcelerator.com/jdk-osx
      [ERROR] : If you still see this message, then you may need to set the JAVA_HOME to help Titanium locate the JDK.
      [ERROR] : To see which JDKs Titanium finds, run "appc ti info --types jdk --output json".
      TRACE | titanium exited with exit code 1
      ERROR | Error: ti run exited with error code 1

      at Process.ChildProcess._handle.onexit (child_process.js:1074:12)
      TRACE | Sending exit signal to titanium process: 4214

      I installed JDK 6 for Yosemite and the problem went away

      I hope that we can install everything we need during Studio install as this can lead to a bad user experience
