Christian Robottom Reis, Engineering VP at Linaro, announced last week that an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) ARM port of the OpenJDK 6.0 package for Ubuntu is available for download and testing.
"Matthias has just landed in the Precise repositories an updated version of OpenJDK that comes with a newly updated Zero-based ARM optimized backend.
"Since many people have inquired about the general state of Java on ARM, I'd like it if we could get some installation and testing results using the packages published from the source at link
" - said Christian Robottom Reis in the email
Please note that, at the moment, there's no backport PPA for these packages. Bugs, installation issues and general results should be reported here
