Hi all,
I'm trying to use I2C on GPIO of Raspberri PI 3B.
I2C interface has been enabled using raspi-config.
Actually I don't have an I2C device connected to the GPIO pins, but only an oscilloscope connected.
I'm using the code suggested by Erel here: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/iot-jpi4j-raspberry-pi-gpio-controller.37493/#content
I'm in debug mode. If I use Bus 0 I obtain Error: "java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException". To avoid this I changed to Bus 1 as follow and it works:
B4X:
    Dim bus As JavaObject = GetBus(1)
    Dim device As JavaObject = GetDevice(bus, 0)
    Write(device, 120)
When I get the bus I have the following WARNINGS:
B4X:
WARNING: An illegal reflective access operation has occurred
WARNING: Illegal reflective access by com.pi4j.io.file.LinuxFile (file:/home/pi/tempjars/AsyncInput1) to field java.nio.Buffer.address
WARNING: Please consider reporting this to the maintainers of com.pi4j.io.file.LinuxFile
WARNING: Use --illegal-access=warn to enable warnings of further illegal reflective access operations
WARNING: All illegal access operations will be denied in a future release
Anyway I proceed and I get bus and device correctly, but when in the Sub Write(...) the RunMethod runs, I have this error:
B4X:
Error occurred on line: 684

I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
Please someone can help me fixing this error?
Thanks to everyone.

Hello.
Downloaded from Oracle site this file: jdk-8u241-linux-arm32-vfp-hflt.tar.gz
Copied and unpacked on Raspberry in /home/pi
Launched the bridge with:
sudo jdk1.8.0_241/bin/java -jar b4j-bridge.jar
Performed connection with B4J and Run application.
The B4J log windows says
Errore: non sono presenti i componenti runtime di JavaFX necessari per eseguire questa applicazione
Translated: "Error: there are no JavaFX runtime components needed to run this application".

If I do the same using Jdk11, the Java FX modules are loaded and I obtain the same error as yesterday.

What can I do now?
Thanks to everybody.

So I should create an UI app running on Java 11 and a not UI app for the I2C communication running on Java 8. Is this correct? In this case what's the correct way to exchange data between the apps?

With a not UI app on Java 8 I has been able to transmit and receive data with the I2C.
I will try the data exchange between app soon.
Thank you very much Erel.
