I'm receiving following message inside of Event Log window whenever I'm launching Android Studio:

OpenJDK shows intermittent performance and UI issues. We recommend using the Oracle JRE/JDK

In order to run Android Studio, I was asked to install Java 1.7+, which I did:

[alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$ rpm -q jdk1.8.0_25-1.8.0_25-fcs
[alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$ 

I'm using following:

[alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release 
CentOS Linux release 7.0.1406 (Core) 
[alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$ uname -a
Linux wcmisdlin02.XXX.org 3.10.0-123.13.2.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Dec 18 14:09:13 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$ 

How can I either force or "re point" Android Studio to use Oracle JDK instead of OpenJDK?

The recommended way is to set the STUDIO_JDK environment variable before launching.

export STUDIO_JDK=/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_25-1.8.0_25-fcs.x86_64

replacing /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_25-1.8.0_25-fcs.x86_64 with the path of your jdk installation
