RPi and Java Embedded: Hard-Float Support is Here!!!

You wanted Java Embedded with Hardware Floating Point support to install on a default Raspian environment for your Raspberry Pi? Well, you just got your wish. Merry Christmas!

See:

JDK 8 Early Access for ARM w/Hard-Float

Here's a quote:

 The JDK 8 Early Access Release 
 for ARM including JavaFX (JDK 8) on 
 Linux has been made available at 
 http://jdk8.java.net. The Early 
 Access is provided to the community 
 to get feedback on the ongoing progress 
 of the project. Developers can start 
 developing applications using this 
 build of JDK 8 on an ARM device, 
 such as the a Raspberry Pi.
It's a regular JDK (JDK 8 Early Access) for your Raspberry Pi, so you should note this means there is a javac (and the other typical JDK tools) available to compile your Java apps right there on the device! Woot!

I'll cover step-by-step instructions how to do that in a future blog post. Stay tuned...
