I was having an offline discussion with Geertjan about using NetBeans remote platform development with Java SE 8 Embedded on the Raspberry Pi. Soon as I mentioned how you do that with just a few straight-forward steps using sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-jdk, he's got it in a Web article.
Here's a quote:
Once you have set up a Raspberry Pi, the next step is to install "JDK 8 for Arm" on it. Here is how, on the command line of the Raspberry Pi: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-jdk Once you have done that, you need: Putty, WinSCP, SSH, and other command line tools, right? Wrong.Nice! Geertjan is right. All you need is to install oracle-java8-jdk on your RPi and have the NetBeans IDE running over the network on a host system, and you're cookin'!
