Newsflash 757208

About 18 months ago we embarked on an ambitious journey to deliver a major update of the Java ME platform standard by filing JSR 360 (CLDC 8) and JSR 361 (MEEP 8) in the JCP (“JSR 360 and JSR 361: A Big Leap for Java ME 8”).

Both JSR 360 and JSR 361 were unanimously approved this week, with 25 YES votes each. Java ME 8 is now a reality, bringing the power of Java 8 to small embedded. Stay tuned for more announcements soon. 

In the meantime, for be sure to check out my webcast “Introduction to Java ME 8” or the ”Java ME 8 Deep Dive” presentation.

The first instance of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) “Develop Java Embedded Applications Using a Raspberry Pi” is currently underway. 

The response has been overwhelming and we had to cut off registrations and put people on the wait list. So we are now announcing a repeat of the course starting May 19th, 2014 to give all of you who missed it the first time around another opportunity. Enroll now before space runs out again. It’s still FREE.

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

Cheers,

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!
