try running:

opkg install cacao
This gives you the Cacao virtual machine running with GNU Classpath as
the class library.

Optionally run:

opkg install classpath-awt

To get the native side of Classpath' gtk+ based AWT implementation (for
Swing/AWT applications).


opkg install libswt3.4-gtk-java

for applications that make use of SWT.
