It seemed to me that getting a java version for the plug was unnecessarily difficult for the plug.  There is a Sun embedded version that's available in a trial version that seems to work fine.  But I think it's only good for 90 days before you have to purchase it.

I decided to build a version of OpenJdk 7 for the plug.  This version requires "libffi".  It should also support GUI functionality if you have a recent version of X installed.

If you extract openjdk7-7b86-armv5tel.txz in / it will create /opt/openjdk7.  It takes 134 Megs of disk so it's probably only practical if you have root on SD or USB.

If you extract openjre7-7b86-armv5tel.txz in / it will create /opt/openjre7.  It takes 76 Megs of disk.


The .tzx files require xz-utils to extract.

Hopefully this will help those of you who want to run java on the plug.
