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.
Announcing Java ME 8 Early Access #2
This blog has been quiet lately, but not for lack of activity … quite the opposite.
We’ve been extremely busy with Java ME 8 – getting the specs (JSR 360: CLDC 8 & JSR 361: MEEP 8) ready for final ballot and working hard on updating the first Java ME 8 Early Access at JavaOne 2013 (learn more) by adding the latest features as well as new platforms.
So today, we’re announcing new update releases:
- Oracle Java ME Embedded 8 Early Access #2
- Oracle Java ME SDK 8 Early Access #2
These releases are designed to continue to drive Java ME 8 momentum in the industry by giving the community access to the latest Java ME 8 functionality and to demonstrate Oracle’s commitment to delivering Java ME 8 as a modern and purpose-built embedded software platform that addresses the rising demands of the embedded software industry and the Internet of Things.
Key features of the Java ME 8 and Java ME SDK 8 Early Access #2 releases:
- Improved support for JSR 360 (CLDC 8 and GCF 8)
- Improved support for JSR 361 (MEEP 8)
- Improved tooling support (Developer Agent, On-device Debugging, Memory Monitor, Network Monitor, CPU Profiler, Logging)
- Improved networking and connectivity, including wireless support (3GPP, CDMA, WiFi)
- Improved access to peripheral devices through Device Access API
- New APIs for RESTful programming (JSON, OAuth2, HTTP client)
- Updated Java ME SDK 8 EA #2, improving support for new ME 8 functionality, platforms, peripheral devices, tooling, and integration with NetBeans 8 Beta
- Ongoing support for
- JSR 75 (File Connection)
- JSR 120 (Wireless Messaging)
- JSR 172 (Web Services)
- JSR 177 (Security and Trust Services)
- JSR 179 (Location)
- JSR 280 (XML)
- Bug fixes, usability, performance, and footprint improvements
- New support for Qualcomm IoE platform on Brew MP
- Improved support for Raspberry Pi Model B on Debian Linux
- Improved support for Windows 7

Back in July, Oracle announced the Oracle Java Platform Integrator (OJPI) program.
The OJPI program enables companies developing embedded products on devices to leverage the technologies Oracle is providing across their choice of hardware and operating systems. This allows companies to increase their differentiation and value-add, improve application and service portability across a consistent platform, and reduce engineering efforts and time to market for their solutions through the pre-integrated and optimized stacks for Java Embedded.
Since July, we have been busy expanding this offering with more information and additional releases, including:
- Oracle Java SE Embedded 7u40 for ARM and Power (in various configurations)
- Oracle Java ME Embedded 3.3 for ARM11 and ARM Cortex-M3/M4
- Oracle Java ME Embedded 3.4 for Qualcomm QSC6270T
For more background, please also see the related announcement “Oracle Delivers New Capabilities for Powering the Internet of Things” (including video).

Over the years, Oracle has been making big investments in Java for ARM-based devices.
This week, Oracle and ARM announced further expanding their collaboration on a number of fronts, from additional hardware platforms, porting layers, and optimized communication protocols, to 64-bit ARMv8 support, and IoT architectures.
Henrik Stahl, VP of Product Management in the Java Platform Group at Oracle, just posted an excellent summary: “ARM TechCon 2013: Oracle, ARM expand collaboration on servers, Internet of Things”. Highly recommended reading.
It almost got lost in the surge of announcements at JavaOne: Not only did we make available Java ME Embedded 8 Early Access, but we also released an update to the existing Java ME Embedded 3.x product.
Java ME Embedded 3.4 is based on version 3.3 but now also supports the Qualcomm IoE (“Internet of Everything”) developer platform:
- QSC6270T processor with 64 MB DDR RAM and 128 MB NAND Flash
- Tri-band UMTS/HSDPA + quad-band GSM, SIM slot
- 2.4 GHz WiFi a/b/g/n
- Supported I/O: SPI, I2C, GPIO, ADC, UART, SD card, on-board accelerometer, light + temp sensor
Alongside, we’ve also updated the Java ME SDK to version 3.4 to add comfortable application development and debugging on the Qualcomm IoE platform via a USB connection to the PC.
With this release, Java ME Embedded now supports a key part of the Qualcomm ecosystem, opening up new opportunities for embedded Java in a wide range of use cases.
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.
