Which java version does meteor use?

There’s a plugin Im using for analytics which makes use of java 1.8, but Meteor cordova uses 1.6 on my laptop.

java version "1.8.0_144"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_144-b01)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.144-b01, mixed mode)

How can I set the java version for building cordova apps?
