So Oracle has a standalone VM for android that isn't available for download.

Is there a plan to ever release this or this is the main piece the community has to create? Is there some kind of legal reason why Oracle can't release this or is it just not wanting to support it? How much time did oracle spend on creating this? How much time do you think it would take community designers to develop this? Does it support swing and javafx or just javafx like the Pi port? What parts of java8 don't work on your standalone VM?

Good, then use FX78 and you can give it a try. I have my local fork of 
javafx for testing DalvikLauncher. Standalone Vm for Android is not 
available for download.

The launcher unpacks vm, installs it, setup classpath, main class debug port etc (all specified in manifest) and launches it . These are the 2 options which can be further extended by the community.
