What do you get if you combine a drum-playing son and a father who doesn’t like to spend thousands of euros?
Great move of Microsoft! They provide an all-in-one installer for Java dependencies and Visual Studio Code.
Some time ago I ordered a “Breadboard Pi Bridge - Pi Ports to Breadboard in Numerical Order” and reworked my Pi test setup from the previous blogs.
What is Pi4J See https://www.pi4j.com/1.2/index.html This project is intended to provide a friendly object-oriented I/O API and implementation libraries for Java Programmers to access the full I/O capabilities of the Raspberry Pi platform.
As I was learning Spring Boot myself, I thought the easiest way to learn was trying to build an example and write about it.
While trying out what Pi4J can do, I found it could easily be extended with a JavaFX application to provide info about the headers on a Pi board.
As my daily work mainly is Java and back-end stuff on “real servers”, I set myself for 2019 as a personal goal to experiment with Java 11 on a Raspberry PI.
What we will do Based on the previous blog posts
In part 2 of this blog series Java 11 was successfully installed on a PI.
I prefer a Java app above a web app, because starting a new “modern” web development requires you to pull a bunch of dependencies and a lot of files before you can start.
