JavaOne in Russia ended yesterday, with over 2000 developers attending.
Embedded Java was a a hot topic (as it is pretty much everywhere these days) – check out the video on the Smart Home demo with Java ME Embedded on Raspberry Pi, and catch up with other demos and things happening at JavaOne Russia.
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:
- Lots of good resources are here and here (including “Getting Started Guides”, FAQ, videos, and API documentation)
- Check out the OTN Java ME Embedded forum and ask questions – our experts are monitoring these regularly
- Email us at: email@example.com - we’ll get back to you
Have you been working on a cool application, solved a tricky embedded problem, or helped deliver an industrial-grade solution using Java?
There is a lot of great stuff happening in the embedded Java space. The world wants to hear about it.
Submit your proposal to JavaOne 2013 in San Francisco and present your work to thousands of like-minded Java developers!
The Call for Papers has been extended by a week, to April 23rd (watch the web pages for updates).
Get extra credit from me for using Java ME Embedded on Raspberry Pi. Check it out and do something fun and inspiring with it.
At JavaOne 2012 Oracle announced its entry into the small embedded space: Java ME Embedded 3.2.
Today we are announcing the availability of two exciting follow-up releases:
- Java ME Embedded 3.3 for Raspberry Pi (Early Access)
- Java ME SDK 3.3 (Early Access)
With these releases, Java developers can now develop feature-rich embedded Java ME applications and run them on the popular Raspberry Pi board. The new version supports a number of new or improved features:
- Support of Raspberry Pi Model B running Linux Wheezy hard float
- Multi-tasking virtual machine for running multiple applications concurrently and reliably
- Full-featured application provisioning and management
- An enhanced Device Access API, which allows developers to access peripheral I/O directly from Java, including devices on GPIO, UART, I2C, and SPI
- Network and memory monitoring tools
- Various additional enhancements in both the Java ME Embedded runtime and the Java ME SDK
Get a quick intro by watching Simon Ritter’s webcast “Java ME Embedded on the Raspberry Pi”.
Go here to find out more and download Java ME Embedded and Java ME SDK, including an overview, Getting Started Guide, FAQ, and full documentation.
That’s all for today – I will post more information next week.
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.
