The version 1.4.1 of OCTOPUS is not compatible with Java >=9, this will be implemented in the next OCTOPUS release.
Then modify the java used by OCTOPUS in the octopus.bat (windows) or octopus.sh (linux) file (in the installation directory).
replace java by <java_path>java where <java_path> is the path to the java 8 that you just copied, as in the exemple below:
<your_path_to_the_copied_java8/>java -jar octopus.jar
In some specific configurations, the BODC vocabularies are not updated correctly and you cannot see new terms that are already included in the vocabularies.

If you need to launch OCTOPUS on a server without a graphical interface (no graphical packages installed), use the command below:
java -cp octopus.jar fr.ifremer.octopus.controller.BatchController <options>
1/ In the octopus installation directory (containing the octopus.jar file): create a file named octopus.bat
2/ in this file, write the following line:
java -Dhttp.proxyHost=xx.xx.xx.xx -Dhttp.proxyPort=yy -jar octopus.jar
with xx.xx.xx.xx = your HTTP proxy server IP address, yy= your HTTP proxy port.
If you have a HTTPS proxy, you may use:
java -Dhttps.proxyHost=xx.xx.xx.xx -Dhttps.proxyPort=yy -jar octopus.jar
You can combine HTTP and HTTPS parameters if needed:
java -Dhttp.proxyHost=xx.xx.xx.xx -Dhttp.proxyPort=yy -Dhttps.proxyHost=aa.aa.aa.aa -Dhttps.proxyPort=bb -jar octopus.jar
3/ launch octopus using this octopus.bat file (double click)

For the moment, there is no Mac OS Octopus version. But Octopus is a java application. (The .exe and .sh files for windows and linux are just shortcuts to simplify the user life.)
If the user has installed java Oracle 1.8 on his Mac OS, he should be able to run Octopus:
