Are there any way to run Javafx on a Raspberry Pi?
I've tried with oracle's SDK for ARM architecture and it cause errors during the instalation in a Raspbian wheezy distro.
Can anyone give me some information of the way to run it or when it could be supported?
I don't knwo what your specific problem is but as far as I know JavaFX runs on Raspberry Pi. The web is full of corresponding links. Look here for example:
I think the JavaFX for ARM public preview only supports the Beagleboard, not the Pi. There is a JavaFX build usable on the Pi, but I think at the moment it is only available to people signed up as an Oracle partner. I believe a forthcoming beta release of JavaFX for ARM will support a wider range of hardware. I do not think there is any public schedule of when such a beta release might be made available and I do not know the date either.
A public JavaFX preview distribution for Raspberry Pi was released today.

Docs include instructions for execution on a Raspbian wheezy distro.
Here's a DZone link to a related blog post that Stephen Chin wrote, entitled JavaFX on Raspberry Pi – 3 Easy Steps:
I have installed Java 8 on my Raspberry PI (running Raspbian)
I downloaded a JavaFX example program (HelloJavaFX2) and ran it successfully
under Java 8 on my PC.
I then transfered it to the PI and ran it.
The first atttempt failed as it needed a path to jfxrt.jar
Fixing that, it then failed -
java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Can't load library:
The library libglass.so is not in jdk1.8.0
The solution to this problem -
Searching the web I found the following site -
The article states -
* jfxrt.jar is not on the classpath by default (yet). So be sure to include it!
* -Djavafx.platform=eglfb must be specified. If not, it won’t run.
I ran my java fx test with -Djavafx.platform=eglfb and it started to work.
I now get -
ES2Pipeline: OpenGL ES 2.0 embedded device detected
1857463325: glGetError 0x500
The PI forum think this is a problem caused by the type of Mouse !
I have tried several different mice and keyboards - still
fails. I have tried other examples - they fail.
I am developing my FX software on my PC until someone finds a solution (work
Don, the error you are seeing is not fatal and JavaFX should be continuing to run. If you are not seeing anything, I wonder if maybe you are using a remote X connection or VNC. JavaFX writes directly to the display framebuffer, so unless you have a screen connected directly to the Pi you won't see anything. Could this be the problem?
