Hi,

has any of the dev-board owners already tried the ARM built of the KaffeVM?
I know it is not very complete, and doesn't even implement the full 1.2 JVM, but the more advanced VMs like Harmony don't support ARM (and likely won't do in the foreseeable future).

any other recommendation on a VM that supports at least 1.4 and is available for ARM linux?

not that I really need Java, but I was curious after i found Kaffe :)

There's the Jalimo project that provides java packages for ARM devices. OpenJDK itself should work on ARM, but I'm not sure.

I was just searching for this same topic. :) I found this promising project:

OpenJDK Zero-Assembler Project
"Zero is a port of OpenJDK that uses no assembler and therefore can trivially be built on any system."
http://openjdk.java.net/projects/zero/
http://gbenson.net/



It says it's based on LLVM. The ARM code generator of LLVM needs some help since it doesn't JIT compile yet AFAIK. It will produce code for ARM statically though.
