Please check out the OpenJDK Mobile project (http://openjdk.java.net/projects/mobile/ <http://openjdk.java.net/projects/mobile/>)
Although it does not currently meet all of your requirements, it does offer a headless
Java runtime that will be JDK 9 compliant, and support iOS and Android. This runtime
when coupled with the OpenJFX port for iOS and Android can support pure Java
applications on these mobile devices.
