Sure it works!

here's a quick guide (tested on fdom) - works flawlessly!
opgk install cacao
opkg install calsspath
opkg install classpath-gtk (only if you want to run gui programms)
       it even suppors swing, but to do yourself a favor, start 
programming awt apps - you're gonna save yourself alot of trouble!

well one thing: try installing the packages with -force-depends 
parameter if needed and if it gives you warnings either manually install 
the needed packages or it they are already installed, just ignore the 

if you want to run gui apps you have to scp your core.jar form you pc 
onto your freerunner:

check this out:
download, core.jar and opg.jar into the same folder on you fr 
and sh
(the shows you how to run java apps)
