Update on 10/16: Added info related to the Java Hub

Yes, another year has raced past and JavaOne San Francisco is here again – Oct 25 through 29!

And yes, as usual, it’s a packed week again: Keynotes, demos, Exhibition Hall, MakerZone, networking, party, … and more than 450 sessions!

If embedded, small devices, and Internet of Things is your cup of Java (excuse the pun), here is – as every year – my (totally subjective) JavaOne guide. Watch for updates as we get closer to the event, but for now – here is the first pass:


  • JavaOne4Kids (Saturday)
  • JavaOne Keynotes (including Java ME in several segments): Intel, Oracle (Sunday)
  • Throughout the conference
    • Exhibition Area
    • Java Hub (3D Modeling, Geek Bar, Hackergarten, MakerZone, myMatrix, Nighthacking, and OTN Community Cafe). Check out the Java ME Java ME R/C car/Internet of Things demo in the MakerZone and hang out with us at the Geek Bar for Q&A.

My sessions:

  • CON3434: Bringing IoT Cloud Services to Edge Devices with Java ME Embedded 8
  • CON3437: Smart devices for the Internet of Things: Java ME Embedded 8.2 and Beyond

Highly recommended sessions:

  • TUT10744: Getting Started with Java ME Embedded on the STMicro Cortex-M4 and Other Devices (STM, Oracle)
  • CON4075: There Is Business in Java and IoT (Oracle)
  • CON11181: Accelerating IoT with ARM (ARM)
  • CON10322: A Comprehensive Smart Home Platform Powered by Java ME and Java EE (Blueberry Zone)

  • CON5106: Enabling Your Device to Be Part of the Internet of Things (MicroDoc, Hepa Wash)
  • CON6694: From Product to Services in the Embedded World, Thanks to Java ME 8 and STM32 MCU (STM) 
  • CON2588: Internet of Things: Threats and Countermeasures with Java (Oracle)
  • CON11279: Introducing the Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service (Oracle)
  • UGF10301: James Gosling, Robots, the Raspberry Pi, and Small Devices (Liquid Robotics, code centric, Gluon, QAware)
  • BOF6850: Project Kona: Java Networking Technologies for the Internet of Things (ARM, Oracle)

  • CON4805: Increased Developer Productivity for IoT (Bitreactive, Oracle)
  • CON7339: Providing Eyes, Ears, and a Mouth to Your IoT Project (Globalcode)

Other interesting sessions:

  • CON5364: IoT: What Is in It for Java Professionals? (GE, Oracle)
  • CON2582: Java Card Platform Evolution (Oracle)
  • CON4876: How to create a Voting Machine (Canoo, Oracle)

ProSyst logo


Last week at JavaOne, ProSyst announced a Scalable Device Management Solution System for Java ME devices, see here for the press release.

Using the ProSyst mPRM backend and cloud remote device management solution allows customers to remotely monitor and manage gateways and end devices, based on both Java SE and Java ME, from a single management domain using a range of device management operations and protocols.

mPRM has been shown to scale to more than 4,000,000 online devices in simulated operations on Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud systems, and is in commercial use at a number of large service providers.

Another good reason to consider Java Embedded for your next IoT solution.

Newsflash 757208

About 18 months ago we embarked on an ambitious journey to deliver a major update of the Java ME platform standard by filing JSR 360 (CLDC 8) and JSR 361 (MEEP 8) in the JCP (“JSR 360 and JSR 361: A Big Leap for Java ME 8”).

Both JSR 360 and JSR 361 were unanimously approved this week, with 25 YES votes each. Java ME 8 is now a reality, bringing the power of Java 8 to small embedded. Stay tuned for more announcements soon. 

In the meantime, for be sure to check out my webcast “Introduction to Java ME 8” or the ”Java ME 8 Deep Dive” presentation.

The first instance of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) “Develop Java Embedded Applications Using a Raspberry Pi” is currently underway. 

The response has been overwhelming and we had to cut off registrations and put people on the wait list. So we are now announcing a repeat of the course starting May 19th, 2014 to give all of you who missed it the first time around another opportunity. Enroll now before space runs out again. It’s still FREE.

Here is the next Java ME 8 Developer Drop, b58. As before, this is provided “as is”, with no guarantees of stability or functionality. 

To access, go to the EA #2 downloads page and look for “latest developer build”:
