I am using OR on Raspberry Pi since many years now with full satisfaction.
The "Installation the Controller’ page which is part of ‘Get Started’ section of the main OR Web page still refers to an old page for Installation on a Raspberry Pi.
covers OR 2.0, previous version of Raspian and may therefore need some adaptation in particular since the more recent versions of Raspian already include java version 1.7 or even 1.8.
A couple if years ago, I have made a quick tutorial (in French) based on the above nice installation guides.
today, with the latest version of the Raspberry Pi 3 and the latest version of Raspian, I am considering to make an updated tutorial (at least in English), particularly for newbies like me.
Before starting this, I would like to know which version of Java you are using for best performance and best compatibility with OR 2.5.
have been working with the 1.7 or 1.8 versions that are either preinstalled on Raspian Jessie or very easily installed. I could not have the 1.6 version working.
What is important to note is that I am NOT using any rules or drools and therefore I am not able to guide towards the best java version as I understood not all java version are fully compatible with the drools.
I am using the preinstalled version of Node-RED (see the attached example) where rules are generated and interpreted. The latter could be the occasion of another discussion…
To summarize, the installation of OR 2.5 from “out of the box” Raspian Jessie take just a few lines and a couple of minutes only… Again, not sure this is the best option for any use!
Feedback really welcome!
