I'm trying to run some software that relies on Java. Currently I have:
~ » java --version jpage@LMDP-PJacob java 9.0.4 Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 9.0.4+11) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 9.0.4+11, mixed mode)
I'm getting a runtime error for the application (Cassandra):
Improperly specified VM option 'ThreadPriorityPolicy=42'
...so figured I may need to upgrade to a newer version of Java. I see there's a Java 13, but I seem to only be able to download the entire JDK from Oracle's download page. Since I do not plan on doing any Java development, I'd rather not clutter up my HD with a bunch of development crap.
Does the world of Java still have the concept of a distinct JRE versus JDK? If so, why can't I find the download for just the JRE? Or am I getting some stuff confused? Java versioning has long been confusing to me.
