In February Bob Vandette wrote that he would add sun.arch.abi to the set
of system properties in order to distinguish between armel and armhf
systems . This seems to have been implemented in Java 8 . So I
hope, that all future Java 8 builds (Java SE, Java SE embedded) will
provide sun.arch.abi on arm.
However, with the current version of Java SE embedded (7u45),
sun.arch.abi does not seem to exist. Is there a chance that the changes
to provide sun.arch.abi will be backported to Java 7?
I know, that there are other possibilities to check whether the JVM is
armel/armhf , but I don't like the complexity of these solutions.
