This short video explains: how you can install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on the Beaglebone Black; how you can build Java applications using Eclipse and deploy them to the Beaglebone; and, finally how you can use the Remote System Explorer (RSE) plugin for Eclipse that streamlines the process. This video is for student of my EE402 module in Dublin City University who will be building client/server applications using the Beaglebone as one of the platforms. The video also explains how to set the profile configuration for setting the PATH and JAVA_HOME.
