JFokus is focusing (that’s right!) on embedded for it’s upcoming event Feb 4-6 in Stockholm:
- A dedicated 2-day track on “Embedded, M2M & Internet of Things”
- An embedded lab with Java on Raspberry Pi (sorry, already sold out …)
Mattias and the JFokus crew have put together a great embedded track, with a cross-section of talks on what’s hot and relevant in the embedded space right now. Here a selection:
- Opening keynote by Oracle’s Henrik Ståhl, Senior Director of Product Management for Java
- Axel Hensmann from Gemalto (Cinterion) on why they are using Java on their wireless modules
- Gerrit Grunewald will be undoubtedly delivering some cool tricks and visuals with Java on BeagleBoard, Raspberry Pi, and HTML5
- Nighthacker Stephen Chin with a Raspberry Pi BOF
- Simon Ritter will be serving coffee and pi (the Java and the Raspberry kind)
- I will be doing the closing keynote on “Java in the Internet of Things: Smart, Small, Connected“
- And more embedded sessions in between ….!
And, this being one of northern Europe’s premier Java conferences, there are another 5 tracks packed with Java content, from the Java Platform, enterprise and web development, cloud, and other software development topics.
Hope to see you in Stockholm!
It’s the ultimate recursion: Making Java with Java
Last year, Vinicus Senger already proved you could make Java (the hot one) with Java (the equally hot one), with his “Having Fun with Home Automation and Java EE” project. See this parleys.com video.
Now, Sasha Wolter created the next iteration. As part of a project for the Deutsche Telekom Developer Garden he built a voice-controlled coffee machine, using the Raspberry Pi, Oracle Java, a Nespresso machine, and some network APIs of Deutsche Telekom.
The Top 10 OTN Java Articles are always a popular topic. We just compiled the information for 2012 - Embedded Java and Raspberry Pi was hot, with article #1 garnering 56,000 page views!

It’s Devoxx time again!
If you’re at Devoxx, sure to check the schedule for a whole range of exciting Java and Oracle topics:
JavaFX, OpenJDK, JDK 7, Java Embedded, Java EE, JCP, NetBeans, Greenfoot, as well as Java Duchess and JUG meetings. Talks, labs, BOFs, demos, and more.
Embedded Java will also play a prominent role. Want to see Java on Raspberry Pi in action? Find out why what’s happening with Java in IoT (Internet of Things)? Play with NetBeans and Tinkerforge?
Check out the full Devoxx schedule.
Why do I think Java has the most exciting part of its future still ahead of it? Catch up with me at my talk on Wed 14:00: ”Small, Smart, Connected: Java in the Internet of Things”.
My colleague and esteemed JavaFX hacker Stephen Chin is currently on the road on his NightHacking Tour through Europe, geeking with toys and projects, hacking code, and interviewing Java luminaries along the way.
You might know the guy on the left – James Gosling was the first stop of the tour.
What’s more, you can follow live on UStream at each stop along the way. Very cool! To learn all about the NightHacking Tour, check here.
Stephen will swing past my place in Freiburg, Germany, on Saturday (Nov 3). We’ll be chatting about all the stuff that’s happening in the embedded space these days and play with the latest small Java – if the demo gods allow
As I mentioned in my previous post, 2012 sees a big focus on embedded Java topics leading up to the show as well as throughout the conference. Last week was the announcement of two new embedded products: Oracle Java ME Embedded 3.2 and Java Embedded Server 7.0 (a blog post on this coming soon). And this week follows up with a host of keynotes, sessions, tutorials, booths, demos, and other content at JavaOne and Java Embedded @ JavaOne.

Enough content? I thought so And, not to forget, be sure to check out the DemoGrounds at JavaOne – lots of cool demos, geek toys, and more. And hang out at the OTN Lounge while you’re there.
Hope you have a great show. See you around!
JavaOne is only 6 days away… Are you ready?
Man, what a crazy couple of weeks it has been. Haven’t blogged for ages. Insanely busy with preparations for JavaOne, Java Embedded @ JavaOne, and some new products we’re working on (on the latter, stay tuned …).
There is so much activity, information, and data around JavaOne to choose from – it’s hard to stay on top of it all. I’ll try to keep it short and provide the highlights as well as my embedded point of view. Ok, here it goes:
First, in case you may not know, there are actually two (!) Java conferences this year: JavaOne itself, and Java Embedded @ JavaOne.
- JavaOne happens from Sep 30 through Oct 4 (yes, that means keynotes are on Sunday! Don’t miss them)
- Java Embedded @ JavaOne happens Oct 3 and 4 – in parallel to JavaOne
Henrik Stahl, Senior Director of Product Management, does a great job of introducing Java Embedded @ JavaOne.
Finally, if you have more questions, check out my FAQ on the Java Embedded @ JavaOne conference.
As every year, JavaOne will be packed with keynotes, technical sessions, BOFs, Hands-On-Labs (HOLs), demo grounds, and events.
New for this year are tutorials, which are a mix between an extended technical session, a BOF, and a HOL. It gives the presenters extra time to show you the ropes on a particular topic and extra time for the attendees to ask questions. But it is less of a ‘lab’ setting compared to a HOL. Should be a good addition to the JavaOne structure.
Also new this year is the Oracle OpenWorld Music Festival, which happens throughout the conference (Sun-Thu) in a couple of venues around the main event area. There is music every day and a great line-up of performers such as Macy Gray, Jimmy Cliff, The English Beat, Joss Stone, and many more. Definitely worth checking out. Of course, there is the traditional assortment of parties and events – just check the JavaOne home page!
In terms of embedded, there will be a HUGE focus on that topic at this year’s JavaOne. Oracle is making a big push for Java in the embedded space, not just by launching the Java Embedded @ JavaOne conference (see above), but embedded is embedded (pun intended!) all throughout JavaOne itself:
- Dozens of dedicated embedded technical sessions, BOFs, tutorials, and Hands-on-Labs – ranging from tiny embedded devices through complex end-to-end embedded solutions and touching on a range of different use cases and markets
- Java in embedded spreads throughout the pavilion and demo boths
- Embedded technology featuring in JavaOne keynotes (very cool – see for yourself!)
- Involvement of partners specializing in embedded solutions built on Java
