I'd consider most of the GNU Classpath based implementations (Kaffe, 
JamVM, Cacao) to be exchangeable at the feature level, as they all use 
the same class library underneath.

They differ in terms of size, VM internals, and performance, but they 
should be readily available for whatever arm-linux platform you are 
building for (or easy enough to cross-compile), ao that  you can make 
your testing specific to your application and your environment, rather 
than having to make decisions based on generic comparisons.
