Java 8 and BlueJ 3.14 on a Raspberry Pi

In late 2013 Oracle released a Java language development kit (JDK) optimized for the Raspberry Pi's platform..

A short time later the Raspberry Pi Foundation included Oracle’s JDK by default in its Raspbian OS image.

However, running a coder-friendly Java editor, like the BlueJ IDE, on the Raspberry Pi was still a problem.

The good news it that in a recent Java Magazine article Michael Kolling describes how to install and run BlueJ version 3.14 on the Raspberry Pi.

Even better, this version of BlueJ also includes the Pi4J library for direct access to the Raspberry Pi's hardware.
