Free course on Java Embedded on the Raspberry Pi?

Oracle is developing a free, on-line course on developing Oracle Java Embedded applications using a Raspberry Pi as the development platform.

The course teaches experienced Java SE developers how to design and develop applications using Java ME Embedded 8 EA on a Raspberry Pi with physical devices, including: switches and Light Emitting Diodes (LED); temperature/barometric pressure sensors; Global Positioning System (GPS) sensors; and system interrupt timers. Additional modules include logging, threads, network I/O, file I/O, record management service, push registry, application management services and best practices for headless embedded devices.Sounds like great fun doesn't it? Read more about the course and give us your feedback in this short survey.

Oracle Java 7 JDK on Raspberrry Pi

This is just fantastic news:

"It’s therefore fantastic to be able to announce that we’ve added the official hard-float Oracle Java 7 JDK to our repository. Oracle Java offers significant performance advantages over OpenJDK on ARM platforms, and will expand the range of Java applications that run well on the Pi."

Read more here!

And if you're a current owner of a Rpi how do you install Oracle Java 7 JDK on the RPi? Easy:

sudo apt-get update && \
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-jdk

Now time to write some cool Java programs on the RPi.
