Thanks. I just tried this, but as far as I can tell the server JIT only runs on ARM v7.
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Server VM is only supported on ARMv7+ VFP
This seems to document the fact:
Does anyone know the status of the Shark JIT for OpenJDK on ARM/Linux? I have found several old web pages (2010) saying it's not quite stable yet, but nothing recent. The Debian OpenJDK 1.6.0 runtime I installed mentions the "-shark" command line option with "java -help", but it isn't installed.
