JavaFX8 on iPhone! It works!

You guys have obviously had jfx running on both ios and android internally before for demos (and I assume you're testing this code you're releasing?). What JVMs are you using for this?
Niklas I'm assuming that robovm used the android base because j8 features are either not possible or much more work to support. Is this the case or was there another reason for that choice? I'm assuming that at best moving to j8 is not a trivial or quick task?
Making the backport fully android focused would seem like the shortest path for both ios and and android here? It's not great that there's so much to change in jfx for this to work. Apart from the extra hassle/delay now, this is going to make maintaining this backport and keeping it inline with bug fixes and updates messy.

It looks like, because the iOS one is so closely related to the Mac build, it was the easiest one to get a build for the open community. We're working on the Android build scripts. The situation on Android is exactly the same as iOS -- we're open sourcing the library code, but not a Java 8 VM. I would expect that if the iOS build on RoboVM works, that the Android build for RoboVM would also work, but I haven't tried it.
