    [Follow-up] JavaFX ARM Preview on an Iconia Tab A700

      Hi all,

      I'm going on with my work after a previous discussion:

      Re: JavaFX on ARM tablet

      Now I have an Iconia Tab A700 with Android 4.0.4, I locally mounted on it an image of Ubuntu ARM that I access via VNC.

      First of all, is the Iconia Tab A700 a correct ARM device that I can use for tests?

      I've then downloaded the JavaFX preview (http://jdk7.java.net/fxarmpreview/index.html), unpacked it on the Ubuntu ARM and tried to run a JavaFX application.

      I receive this kind of exception:

      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /opt/jdk1.7.0_10/jre/lib/arm/libglass.so: /opt/jdk1.7.0_10/jre/lib/arm/libglass.so: undefined symbol: ZTVN10_cxxabiv120__si_class_type_infoE

      How can I solve this?

          First of all, is the Iconia Tab A700 a correct ARM device that I can use for tests?
          I don't think so.

          I think you should use the hardware (and follow the instructions) documented in the JavaFX ARM developer preview installation instructions:

          For example use a BeagleBoardXM:
          Connected to a compatible display:

          Really, JavaFX on ARM is a prototyping platform targeted at an extremely limited set of hardware at the moment, not a production platform.
          It is in public preview now so that you can test it out and provide feedback via bugs and feature requests at http://javafx-jira.kenai.com.

            Ok, in fact I see also in the JavaFX roadmap document:

            "This Developer Preview can currently be used with the BeagleBoard xM, with other embedded platforms planned in the months to come."

            About the "other embedded platforms" can I consider devices such as the Iconia Tabs?

            If so, when does the final release approximately should get out? Half 2013?

              Does anybody know something about my questions? :-(
