You are welcome. It's mostly based on self-interest: I use scilab
regularly (mostly on the command line though) on openSUSE Tumbleweed.

I think the jar content looks ok. I think it's some incompatibility
between jdk 8 and 9 that prevents the classpath from being correctly
used. The same binary works with jdk 8 (even though it is compiled
against jdk 9) once the jre paths in the scilab script are
appropriately adapted; but it doesn't with jdk 9.

Many thanks. It will be great if these patches are upstreamed; it would
certainly reduce my work (I maintain Scilab packages for openSUSE)
during version upgrades.

Best wishes.
