Java Support

Fri Jun 01, 2012 11:32 am

I just got my Pi yesterday and am very impressed with it! I loaded the latest Debian image and got rolling in very short order.

I have run into a little problem that I haven't been able to find a solution to through a good bit of searching. Specifically, I can't seem to get the Java plug-in working through either Midori or Chromium.

So far I downloaded and successfully installed Open JDK 6, but when I go to a site that has Java, nothing loads in Midori, and I get a 'Missing Plug-In' box in Chromium with no option to add the plug-in.

Is there any way to get this working, or being that the platform is in its infancy is this just not supported yet?

Thanks in advance!

For reference, here is the command I entered to install Open JDK, which seemed to work...

sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk libjna-java

On a related note has anyone run any tests or have any experience of the performance on the Pi architecture of the various java versions? ie, Sun Java vs OpenJDK. 6 or 7?
