I was just pointing out that there is a difference between the two jars. The reason I found out is this:
CPU Support - not all Pi models
Java 9 takes advantage specific CPU instruction sets commonly found in modern 64-bit processors, like the ARM v7/8 CPUs and x86 range. This move will help improve runtime performance.
However, as of today, this does limit Java 9 to the Raspberry Pi 2 and Pi 3 boards. Owners of model As, Bs and Zeros, with their older ARM v6 processor chips, will therefore have to keep using Java 8.
Here’s a beautiful command if you have
jq (commandline JSON processor) installed:
~$ curl -s https://api.github.com/repos/blynkkk/blynk-server/releases/latest | jq --raw-output '.assets | .browser_download_url' | wget -i -
Saving to: "server-0.29.2.jar"
If you change the
.assets you’ll get the server-[version]-java8.jar instead.
Dude! You can’t type that fast!
