Hi, I am new to iMX233 processor development and to this community. I have a requirement for media players using this players. Can I use Java language for this development ? Thanks for the response.
Please use the following from Community :

Note, for i.MX23 we should use ARMv5 packages :

I had hard-time talking with the imx233 processor board through Ubuntu. I have followed the following steps for connecting it.
1. Installed a virtual Ubuntu operating system on my Windows XP using Oracle Virtual Box.
2. Connected the imx233 board through a cross-wired cable to the Windows host.
3, Connected the serial debugger through Hyperlink.
4. Copied the LTIB onto the SD card of the processor,
5. I tried various ways by enabling the network communication on the Ubuntu but I don't see any kind of Ethernet lights flashing on the board. However I verified with oscilloscope that the board was powered.
I am basically stuck as there is not any kind of communication to the board. Your earliest response on this is highly appreciated. The basic question is how do we install the LTIB on the board ??? It looks to me a Chicken-Egg problem because unless I talk to the board I can't install at the same time I can't talk to the board unless I install some OS on the board. Please help me.
Thanks and appreciated.
Yes you can. Using Yocto you can build a Java VM from source for your use.
Can you please explain a little bit more for me ? Thanks
Yocto has a good community around it and currently most commonly used SoCs from i.MX platform is already supported by the meta-fsl-arm layer.
You can find more information how to make a build at https://community.freescale.com/docs/DOC-94023
My main problem is that I am not able to communicate with the iMX board from Windows/Virtual host. So I am not able to download any LTIB or other OS onto the board. Will you please be able to help me on this ? I really appreciate your information on Yocto I will try that once I establish connection. Thanks
Well, I cannot help you much with Windows as I use and develop on Linux host.
yes it is a Ubuntu host installed on Windows as Virtual host.
I installed Ubuntu on Windows as Virtual host and trying to connect with my iMX233 processor. Will you please help me how to establish the initial link. I can install the BSP once it is talking to the host. I really appreciate for any kind of knowledge share in this regard.
