Oracle JDK 7u40 EA hardfloat available

Hi all,

Our next JDK 7 release (JDK 7u40) will provide support for hardfloat Linux/ARM, which means you will be able to use it with Raspbian. Early access binaries are available here:
https://jdk7.java.net/download.html

Use the Linux ARM 32-bit HardFP one for Raspbian, and the SoftFP one for Wheezy.

This EA should include full Swing/AWT support. Performance should be top notch compared to other JVMs. JavaFX is not included - that is introduced in JDK 8 (also available in early access).

Happy programming!

Henrik (Oracle Java team)

So is this better in any way than the JDK8 release for serverside stuff, specifically http://rupy.googlecode.com?

Probably about the same, but likely more stable since JDK 8 is still in very early EA
