Java SE for embedded devices is now available in an updated release. This release delivers a host of improvements, among them:

  • The Java Runtime Environments (JRE) for Linux on ARM, PowerPC, and x86 are now aligned with the latest Java SE update 21 release for desktop and servers
  • Adds multi-core support for ARM and PowerPC processors including parallel garbage collection, background JIT compilation, and more
  • Improved performance and throughput in many areas, including a 20% speed-up on Caffeinmark and nearly 2x performance over Android on common benchmarks
  • Hundreds of enhancements, security improvements, and bug fixes

Why would you use Java SE Embedded vs. the normal Java SE (for desktop) release?

  • Java SE Embedded is available on a number of additional ISAs (ARM, PowerPC, and more) and OSes (Windows XP-Embedded, and more) – check with us for a full list
  • Java SE Embedded is optimized for embedded environments in a number of ways, such as reduced footprint and tuned memory management
  • Java SE Embedded offers a headless configuration which saves additional footprint in embedded solutions which do not require graphics

Java SE Embedded is a great solution if you need the full power of Java SE for your embedded product.
