JDK or JRE for Minecraft server?

  1. What do you think would be more beneficial performance wise for a Minecraft server to use JDK or JRE Java and why?

    Thanks for your rant

    JRE is a subset of JDK. You wont gain/lose when using either one unless you are developing Java applications. JDK (Java Development Kit) contains extra things for compiling and developing Java applications.
