Java error on application install

I am trying to install an application called OpenHAB, which recommends using ZULU. When I attempt to do this I receive the following error, I am not very savvy with UNIX?CLI so any information on what needs to be changed would help. I also noted when checking the version command that this current MacOSX (9.0.4)version does not report (build 1.X.X) as indicated in the install guide.

Found my own answer:

At the moment openHAB is incompatible with Java 9. Install Zulu JDK 8 instead.
