Currently I have on my RaspberryPI with Arch Linux ARM as OS a JBoss Application Server 7.1.1 with my Java EE 6 application running on JDK 7 update 6.
I tried to start JBossAS with JDK 8 (build 1.8.0-ea-b36e) but then it results in the following error:

"Error occurred during initialization of VM
Server VM is only supported on ARMv7+ VFP"

Raspberry PI supports ARMv6+VFP (hard float).

Remove "-server" or replace it with "-client" from the javastart JAVA_ARGS or anything related to that matter from JBossAS and see if it can still be started. If JBossAS requires the Server VM it might not currently be possible with the Early Access JDK 1.8.0 as of now.

Correct, the server VM is not supported on ARMv6.
