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.
