Enabling Java: Windows on Arm64 – A Success Story!

This is a tale of 3 engineers and their quest to bring Java to every Windows on Arm developer.    

We will provide:  

  1. a quick timeline of our development efforts and Microsoft’s journey into OpenJDK land (spoiler alert: we were welcomed with open arm(s) (pun intended)),

If we feel lucky, we will even showcase a demo on our Surface Pro X device.
