I'm trying setup the remote platform so that I can develop using Netbeans 8.0.2. If followed the instructions given here as the author referred me to (minus sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-jdk because Raspbian already comes with java 8), but when I click Finish, I receive this error:

Could not connect to remote Java SE Platform. Please check your settings.

Nothing was wrong with my settings. I had the right host, username, password,

The status bar temporarily showed this:

build connecting to remote java SE platform (connect-ssh-password) failed

And in the notifications for Netbeans, this appeared after connecting:

cmd : cd '/home/pi/NetBeansProjects/'; '/home/pi/jre//bin/java' -jar org-netbeans-modules-java-j2seembedded-probe.jar platform.properties
bash: line 1: 15453 Illegal instruction     '/home/pi/jre//bin/java' -jar org-netbeans-modules-java-j2seembedded-probe.jar platform.properties
    C:\Users\Foo Bar 2\AppData\Local\Temp\antScript6209826919581247088.xml:65: Remote command failed with exit status 132

My EJDK location is C:\pi\ejdk1.8.0_06

Any suggestions as to what may be wrong?

I had similar problem. After reading some of the latest messages from Geertjan at this site : https://blogs.oracle.com/geertjan/entry/youtube_ejdk_raspberry_pi_and

I set the Remote JRE path to path of the jdk on my RPI: /usr/lib/jvm/jdk-8-oracle-arm-vfp-hflt And did NOT click the Create button - but just Finish. Then it created my remote platform.

hopes it gets you further :)
