The MagPi step-by-step video

In “The MagPi Magazine” #93 and #94, published by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, you can find two articles which describe how you can get started with Java, Maven, Visual Studio Code and Pi4J on the Raspberry Pi.

Installing Java and JavaFX on the Raspberry Pi

One of the most read articles on this blog is about the installation of a recent Java on Raspberry Pi (March 13, 2019), so it’s time for an update!

Drumbooth controller with Raspberry Pi and JavaFX

Based on multiple examples from my book “Getting started with Java on Raspberry Pi”, I created a touchscreen controller for the drum booth of my son.

Raspberry Pi 4 speed boost in 64bit moe

Raspberry Pi and SPI 8x8 LED matrix example with Java and Pi4j

While looking for a cheap and nice component to demonstrate the use of SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) I found out this 8x8 matrix LED display on a board with a MAX7219 chip is the perfect piece of hardware!

OpenWeatherMap forecast on LCD with Raspberry Pi, Java and Pi4J

Pi4J contains helper methods to minimize the work needed to use certain hardware modules on the Pi with Java.

Reactive Spring Flux data from a Pi

Trisha Gee (Coder, blogger, speaker, Developer Advocate at JetBrains, @trisha_gee), which I interviewed for “Chapter 4: Choosing an IDE”, and Josh Long (Spring Developer Advocate at Pivotal, @starbuxman) worked together on a blog series in which they showed the power of reactive data produced by a Spring application.

Controlling a LED number display with JavaFX and Python on Raspberry Pi

In my book I explain the use of bits and bytes by using a shift register SN74HC595 IC and 5101AS LED number display.

Raspberry Pi history, versions, pins and headers as a Java Maven library

The best way to understand and learn something new, is to document it yourself.

Controlling Arduino with Mosquitto and JavaFX on Raspberry Pi

One of the example applications in my book “Getting started with Java on the Raspberry Pi” combines a JavaFX application with Mosquitto on the Raspberry Pi to control a LED strip with an Arduino.

Clean Raspberry Pi GPIO testing with the Breadboard Pi Bridge

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.

Pi4J to easily work with the hardware of a Raspberry Pi with Java

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.

Pi4J - Adding a REST interface with Spring Boot

As I was learning Spring Boot myself, I thought the easiest way to learn was trying to build an example and write about it.

Pi4J - Extending with a JavaFX info application

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.

PiJava overview - Java 11 and JavaFX 11 on Raspberry PI

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.

PiJava - Part 6 - JavaFX 11 on Raspberry PI with TilesFX and GPIO

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.

PiJava - Part 2 - Installing Java 11 on a Raspberry PI 3 Model B+

After my first (and failed) attempt to get Java 11 running on an old Raspberry PI, I bought a brand new 3 Model B+ version.

PiJava - Part 1 - Trying to run Java 11 on an old Raspberry PI

One of my goals for 2019 is experimenting with the latest Java and JavaFX versions on a Raspberry PI.
