Raspberry Pi - Oracle Java SE 7 (JDK/JVM) Now Pre-Installed on Raspbian

My Raspberry Pi just got a whole lot *sweeter*.

While attending JavaOne this year, Oracle announced that the Raspberry Pi foundation would soon start shipping the Oracle JDK/JVM (Java) baked into the Raspbian distribution.

Here was the official announcement on raspberrypi.org:

And a day later new images were posted for download that include Oracle Java SE fully "baked in".

You can download the latest Raspian image that includes Oracle Java SE 7 here:
http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads 

Here is a slide (photo) from the JavaOne Community Keynote where this was announced.

Its a real treat to flash and boot up a fresh Raspberry Pi (Raspbian) image and Java be there without requiring additional steps to install it.

If you prefer to install the JDK8 developer preview/early access version, please see this page:

Sweet! I just finished bungling my way through the process of installing Java on my RPi last week. It was a challenge, especially without ready internet access to fulfill dependencies, so having new images of Raspian already bundled with Java is a welcome relief.

HI,
could you add a new method to I2C class (+ native lib) to implement a read operation writing more than one byte (in place of a single localAddress)?
Example:

JNIEXPORT jint JNICALL Java_com_pi4j_jni_I2C_i2cReadBytes
(JNIEnv *env, jobject obj, jint fd, jint deviceAddress, int writeOffset, int writeSize, jbyteArray writeBytes, jint readSize, jint readOffset, jbyteArray readBytes)

This is very usefull performing a read operation with a complex data information as input (like for i2c eeproms).

Thank you very much.
