And this is only an EA build... We are also working on a hardfloat build of JDK 7. The ARM port itself is closed source and will remain so for now, but there are some great places where the community can help us make Java for the RPi even better:kermitas wrote:Great! Thank you:)mouseclicker wrote:Kermitas, I installed the JVM and on latest Raspbian Wheezy and run Tomcat 7. Installed in a couple of minutes and worked like a charm System is under 100% CPU for minutes then, but then response times are good. Cool stuff!
I think JDK8 for ARM hard FP is very good direction!
- general OpenJDK work, class libraries, tools, multi-language support, etc
- OpenJFX, all of JavaFX will be open source in this project including the ARM port. Help us improve the graphics pipeline, build controls, improve the Swing/SWT and HTML5 integration, add raw JOGL support, add game controller support, make the audio pipeline work better on RPi etc.
- Help us move some of the Java ME APIs to Java SE and port to RPi, including the Device Access API and Location (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/ ... index.html). If there is any interest in these or other more hardware-centric APIs we will open source our efforts on java.net.
We use GPL+Classpath Exception on all OpenJDK projects. OpenJDK derivates get a free TCK license under the OCTLA program (that's why you have a OpenJDK build for the RPi, folks!).
Head over to java.net and help out, look for the OpenJDK and OpenJFX projects!
