Thanks David, that's good to hear!
I'm no expert, but there seems to be a lot of overlapping OpenGL ES/OpenVG
content that can be utilized between Android and JavaFX, no?

The Udoo is based on an Freescale IMX6 chip, similar to many other offerings
like the SabreLite.
Early indications are that the IMX6 dual and quad are smoking fast, and have
a pretty good Vivante GPU to back them up, and should work well with our JFX
The IMX6 is certainly a "platform of interest" for the embedded team. The
GPU startup is different than the PI and the Beagle (and probably the Origin
:-) That is the key problem for platform support - the vendor/GPU specific
startup sequence for EGL and for a few other things like our cursor overlay.
The other problem is we can't "collect them all" and don't have bandwidth to
build/maintain/validate all of the.
It is hoped that over time we will be able to complete the EGL startup
cascade so that we detect and operate with the popular platforms.
And of course, once we get more of the native code into the OpenJFX repo, we
hope to be able to work with the community to carry that support to a lot
I have a target to post PI specific cross building instructions for OpenJFX
in the coming weeks, right after I make sure it works with the upcoming
transfer of the rendering pipeline.
