Thanks Koen and Ivan. I now have both the jvm and compiler working on my embedded powerpc (started with OE meta-java last night)!
I'm still somewhat puzzled about the dynamics between Yocto and Openembedded, and I have come to conclusion that I need to watch both projects & mailing lists carefully & start asking some questions to get me out of the dark....
I think my initial question about an openjdk layer for yocto is still valid. Although meta-java exists in OE and it makes use of the common meta folders in oe-core, the meta-java layer also makes use of some recipes in other OE layers (e.g, mercurial in meta-oe & fastjar, which I pulled from classic). These additional layers didn't seem to play nicely in the yocto poky tree, so I pulled the recipes and put them in my own layer.
This next question probably shows some of my ignorance with OE (& yocto), but what's the plan inside yocto for use of something like OE's meta-java? Are yocto users just on their own, should there be a README for use of the OE layer in yocto, or maybe there should be a translation layer in yocto for use of popular or common OE layers?
Also, I was working from within master branches in both yocto poky & meta-java. I found that I needed to fudge some recipes to get everything in meta-java to build. I'll probably go back and rebuild from scratch again and see if there are some patches that I should send out.
Thanks again for the heads up on meta-java!
