If you’ve upgraded to macOS Monterey and try to use Oracle SQL Developer you may experience an issue that it starts and then closes after a few minutes. After some research I found that it’s a Java 11 issue with the latest version of macOS.
I got the following instructions from this blog post.

When you start SQL Deeveloper a new warning message will appear that states
You are attempting to run with Java 17.0.1 ... (screenshot below). Click
Yes to accept and continue.
I’ve only tried this for a day now and everything seems to be stable. That said there’s a warning message for a reason and I and hope there’s a Java 11 update soon that resolves the issue.
