Code looks good (minor nit you could use the fluent style to configure
the request).
The Jetty code to connect has not changed between 9.0.4 and 9.2.2, it
has just been refactored into a different class, but it's exactly the
same code.

Frankly, it's really weird.
Are you sure you're not using a non OpenJDK/Oracle JDK in one of the two cases ?
Often old machines come with preinstalled java from who knows where,
and it's enough to type "java" rather than "./java" (or something like
that - different user different bash settings, etc.) to screw up
