Haley: We're doing an ARM64 OpenJDK port!

The ARMv7 family has the A5, A7, A8, A9, and A15. Let's hope it does not get near A32, else things will get even more confusing.

If you really care there is a doc somewhere carefully distinguishing the names of the architecture, 64-bit instruction set, 32-bit instruction set, etc. But I reckon most people without marketing droids standing behind them will just call it arm64 (or armv8).
I've been having fun with bootstrapping: http://wiki.debian.org/Arm64Port
You can install a quantal amd64 chroot with cross toolchain and start building stuff.
Linaro have OE image builds that can be run on ARM's free-beer 'Fast' Model (which is not at all fast) http://www.linaro.org/engineering/armv8
