Update (9/25): Some users may be experiencing problems when installing the Java ME SDK 8 EA plugins into NetBeans. Please see the updated Java ME SDK 8 EA Release Notes for a workaround.
As I blogged recently, the Java ME 8 specifications are moving full steam ahead. And today, Oracle is announcing the immediate availability of Java ME 8 Early Access.
Java ME 8 in a Nutshell:
Java ME 8 is a significant update of the Java ME platform and provides a modern, flexible, and feature-rich embedded software platform that is aligned with Java SE 8 and allows more efficient development, deployment, and management of embedded software solutions:
- CLDC (Connected Limited Device Configuration) 8: Support for Java SE 8 language features and popular Java SE APIs, an updated virtual machine, and footprint optimizations
- GCF (Generic Connection Framework) 8 (part of CLDC 8): IPv6, enhanced connectivity, new protocols, and support for TLS 1.2
- MEEP 8 (Java ME Embedded Profile) 8: Provides a “services-enabled” application framework, footprint reductions through platform “right-sizing”, dedicated new embedded APIs, and an enhanced security model
- Device I/O API version C: Updated to Java ME 8/SE 8 language support, and new functionality and peripheral support
Java ME 8 Early Access scales down to very small target devices – the single-chip solution used on the STM32F4DISCOVERY board has 192 KB of RAM and 1 MB Flash, and costs around US $5 in volume, yet can host a complete solution of Java ME 8 EA runtime, networking and device access functionality, and Java application.
With this update, Java ME 8 is positioned to be the platform of choice for intelligent devices and the Internet of Things.
To learn more about Java ME 8:
- View the 15 minute webcast “Introduction into Java Micro Edition (ME) 8″
- Browse the full slide deck on “Java ME 8 and The Rise of the Internet of Things”
Getting started with Java ME 8 Early Access:
Java ME 8 Early Access is available now for the following developer boards:
- Raspberry Pi Model B (ARM11/Linux)
- ST Microelectronics STM32F4DISCOVERY (ARM Cortex-M4)
Software development is supported by the Java ME SDK 8 Early Access, which includes a Java ME 8 runtime emulation on Windows as well (so you can get started even without a developer board).
- Learn more and download Java ME 8 Early Access binaries and Java ME SDK 8 Early Access tools
- Access Release Notes and step-by-step Getting Started Guides
Reactions to last weeks release of Oracle Java ME Embedded 3.3 and the Oracle Java Platform Integrator (OJPI) program have been excellent.
SIMCom announced the selection of Oracle Java ME Embedded for their new Wireless Module SIM800.
In the press, the news also got a lot of good coverage and analysis. Two of the more interesting articles are:
- Oracle Aims Java ME Embedded at the Internet of Things, by eWeek
- Latest Java ME Update Adds ARM-based Chip Optimization, by ADT Magazine
A very interesting tidbit in the latter article:
“… his company’s surveys show that Java ME is now the third-most frequently-used language for embedded development (around 20 percent), rivaling C/C++ …”
In case you missed it: Last week at JavaOne Shanghai, SIMCom announced it will integrate Oracle Java ME Embedded into its latest wireless module solution, the SIMCom SIM800.
Together with previous announcements by Gemalto/Cinterion, Qualcomm, and Telit, this now means that four of the top manufacturers of wireless modules and chipsets now support Oracle Java ME Embedded.
I wanted to point your attention to a free webinar today by Peter Utzschneider, Vice President of Product Management at Oracle:
Oracle Device to Data Center: The Rise of the Connected Machines
Harnessing Business Value
Date: Tuesday, July 30th, 2013
Time: 10:00 AM PDT
- The explosion of intelligent, connected devices is the next IT wave.
- The key to gaining real business value from M2M services is effective communication among all elements of the architecture with an integrated, end-to-end platform.
- Organizations need to provide high-speed, real-time data capture and analysis.

Oracle and Beecham have recently conducted a market survey on use of Connected Devices for M2M & Internet of Things (IoT) applications and new trends.
On June 27, 9 am ET the first session in this webinar series addresses intelligence in connected devices. Join Peter Utzschneider from Oracle and Robin Duke-Woolley of Beecham Research as they discuss the findings from this survey and the implications for the M2M & IoT connected devices market:
- What are the key business drivers of your connected devices program?
- To what extent do you expect the intelligence required for M2M & IoT applications to change?
- Would these changes occur at the network edge, at the data center, or both?
- What are the impacts of these changes on ISV’s and device manufacturers?
- What are the opportunities for other M2M & IoT players?

A while back, Qualcomm announced development platforms for the “Internet of Everything” (IoE) based on Oracle Java ME Embedded.
Now these boards are on pre-order and the package includes a data plan (12 months at 50 MB / month).
An excellent way to get started with IoE development …
Support for Java in the M2M space is growing rapidly.
Cinterion and Qualcomm have already announced their support for Java using the Oracle Java ME Embedded 3.2 platform.
Two days ago, Qualcomm and AT&T announced their “Internet of Everything” development platform, supporting Oracle Java ME Embedded 3.2.
Yesterday, Telit introduced two Qualcomm-based modules for global M2M markets, with support planned for Oracle Java ME Embedded 3.2 as well.
