Haven’t been posting much lately … very busy behind the scenes, more to follow soon.

In the meantime, I’ll be talking at embedded world conference tomorrow with my colleague Andrey Petushkov:

    Session 08/II, Tuesday Feb 24, 14:30-15:00: 
    Delivering IoT Services with Embedded Java: An Automotive Success Story

While many in the industry are talking about the future of connected cars, Java ME Embedded 8 is rapidly becoming a leading connected vehicle software platform starting to ship in millions of vehicles this year. Join my talk to learn more. For more information on the program, see here.

Also, if you want to catch up with me in person in Nuremberg, feel free to reach out via this blog or my twitter handle.

Update:

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.
