I have a Java app that was using RxTx on Win7 desktop.
I'd like to port it to a Win 8 table, ARM processor.
Anyone done a PureJava adapter for that yet?

It worked for me on Raspberry Pi which is ARM.

Except the Win Serial API is considerably different from the Linux one.
I also wonder about endian-ness and int size differences.


Try my Sensible Email package!

Yes, Linux API is different from Windows API, but the questions is if Win8 API
on Intel is any different from Win7 API on Arm ... without any first hand
experience I would say most likely not, I would expect it to be identical, that
is sort of the point of Windows.

Endian-ness and size differences are likely to be no issues so I have high
hopes that it will "Just Work".

Please report back weather or not it works.
