Update 3/20/2014: Added notes for b54 drop.

As announced 2 weeks ago, we have started semi-regular developer drops of Java ME 8.

Developer Drop b54 was just pushed out today. As before, this is provided “as is”, with no guarantees of stability or functionality. 

To access, go to the EA #2 downloads page and look for “latest developer build”:

Note: It is recommended to use the NetBeans 8 RC1 or NetBeans 8 GA “All” bundle together with the latest Java ME SDK 8 developer build.

 

Change of Device Access API in the b54:

  • The Device Access API name and namespace has been changed to Device I/O (DIO) in preparation for the Java ME 8 final release. This requires that you update the package imports in your application. The latest DIO documentation can be found here.

Notes on changes for the Qualcomm IoE platform in b54:

  • The previously separate Netsetup BrewMP application has been removed and the functionality has been integrated into the Java runtime. Network setup for WiFi/3G is now done as part of the Java runtime initialization.
  • A new BrewMP application called reboot_java has been added. It is optional and can be used to trigger a soft reboot (Java reboot without board reboot).
  • Network setup, AccessPoint API, and Cellular API functionality has been improved/made more complete.

Announcing Java ME 8 Developer Drops

Recently, we released Early Access #2 versions of Java ME 8 and Java ME SDK 8. A lot of developers tried it out and feedback has been great. As expected (after all, this was an Early Access release) – there are still bugs and deficiencies and we have been busy fixing them … many are already taken care of.

In order to enable the developer community to follow along and benefit from the latest improvements and fixes we decided to provide semi-regular developer drops alongside the Early Access #2 release. These developer drops are planned roughly every 14 days, are based on the latest builds and have undergone basic testing. They are provided “as is”, with no guarantees of stability or functionality. This is bleeding edge ;-)

 You can access these developer builds on the same pages as the other EA #2 downloads (look for “latest developer build”):

Note: It is recommended to use the NetBeans 8 RC1 “All” bundle together with the latest Java ME SDK 8 developer build.

 

Please go ahead and give the latest developer builds a spin. And be sure to ask questions and provide feedback: Java ME Embedded OTN forum or java-me-embedded-feedback_ww_grp@oracle.com

As in last years, Oracle will again have a big presence at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany

Find us in hall 5, booth 271. At the booth, you can see several demos focusing on Oracle’s Internet of Things strategy and the benefits of Java for embedded software solutions, including showcase applications by partners such as Gemalto, Freescale, Eurotech, and Hitachi.

I will be doing some sessions as well (download the full conference program here):

  • Thu, Feb 27, 9:30: A hands-on tutorial on “Desktop to Internet of Things in 12 Seconds with Java ME Embedded”
  • Thu, Feb 27, 15:30: “Trust Me, I am an M2M Device”

Java cup

So, pick up some Java while you’re at Embedded World, and not just the technology kind, but also the hot, coffee kind ;-) 

See you at Embedded World!

Cheers,

Is Android a good choice for building an embedded product? Be sure to consider all the facts … In this PartnerCast video, Henrik Stahl answers an attendee question and shares some very valuable insight (skip to the 7:55 time mark in the video).

Summary:

Android is a smartphone operating system with a non-standard Linux base and Android APIs on top, designed for specialized devices with a 2- to 3-year life cycle. Android is not standards-based, has no public roadmap, no predictable lifecycle, and no 3rd party support.

Building and maintaining an embedded product that is in the market for 5 to 20 years based on Android is a very risky proposition.

Java, by comparison, is a standards-based platform with an open roadmap, a transparent community process, and a large ecosystem of 3rd party providers, partners, and developers. Oracle’s Java products cover a wide range of platforms, from very small and resource constrained to large and powerful systems, and come with long-term support.

Sorry for the slow rate of postings lately … been insanely busy working on a number of things related to Java Embedded – stay tuned for more details in the near future.

In the meantime, be sure to register for our upcoming “Virtual Developer Day – Java” in either of two slots:

  • Americas/Canada – Wednesday June 19, 2013
    • 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. PDT
    • 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. EDT

    • 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Corresponding UTC (GMT)

The Virtual Developer Day is a great way to learn about the latest features, platforms, and tools in Java EE, Java SE, and Java Embedded. Watch tutorial and webinars, and engage in live chat sessions with our technical experts standing by to answer (I will be participating in the Java Embedded track).

Find all information and the agenda here. Registration is required, but free

Jax 2013

Tomorrow (April 24th) I will be at the JAX Conference in Mainz, Germany for the Embedded Experience Day, talking about “Java in the Internet of Things: Small, Smart, Connected” (at 14:00).

There will also be an “Embedded Werkstatt” (open 10:00-17:00) with different exhibits and demos and the opportunity to ask the experts and discuss embedded topics.

See you tomorrow in Mainz!

PS: My offer for extra credit for doing something fun with Java ME Embedded on Raspberry Pi still stands!

Question mark

Now that a lot of folks are kicking the tires with Java ME Embedded (see the last couple of blog posts), I just wanted to make sure you know where to go with questions:
