STM32429I EVAL

Announcing Oracle Java ME Embedded 8.1 Developer Preview for STM32429I-EVAL 

With the release of Java ME Embedded 8.1 in Nov 2014 we introduced support for ARM Cortex-M based using Freescale FRDM-K64F.

Today, we are extending the Cortex-M support to the STMicroelectronics STM32429I-EVAL developer evaluation board. The STM32F429I-EVAL represents the very popular STM32F4xx MCU family which is being used in a wide range of embedded applications and markets today and is a perfect target for Java ME 8.

What is in the release?

This Developer Preview release brings the power and flexibility of Oracle Java ME Embedded 8.1 to STM32F4xx micro-controllers:

  • Out-of-the-box support for a rich set of Java ME Embedded 8.1 functionality and APIs
  • Key functionality and protocol support for networking, serial, storage, file, and peripheral I/O
  • Access to the on-board screen
  • Software development via Oracle Java ME SDK 8.1, including NetBeans and Eclipse integration
  • Complete and ready-to-run binary to get started easily

Note that this release is a Developer Preview for development and evaluation purposes, which means that it has undergone extensive testing but is expected to still have limitations and shortcomings compared to a full product-quality General Availability release.

What next?

  • Check out the STM32429I-EVAL Release Notes and Getting Started Guide
  • Order a STM32429I-EVAL board from your favorite distributor
  • Download the ready-to-run binary free from OTN
  • Note: Please be sure to update your Java ME SDK 8.1 installation with the support for STM32429I-EVAL as described in the documentation
