Topic: JRE (Java Runtime Environment) on Infocast 8

I want to run a Subsonic music server on my Infocast 8, then maybe have the touch screen act as a local jukebox. Has anyone tried getting a full-blown JRE running on these?

Check out the following thread which describes how to get Embedded Java to work.

I'm not sure how you would make use of the screen from Java because the Linux used on the Chumby does not include X11.  I could be wrong about X11, though. I just looked at the version of Embedded Java that will run on a Chumby and it's for ARM  5 and is headless.

There is also a description of how to install another implementation of Java in the Wiki.
