Oracle is running the “Internet of Things (IoT) Developer Challenge” until May 30th, 2014. Submit a video and the code of your cool project, and you may win a trip to JavaOne 2014, a laptop, or other great prizes!

Don’t know where to start? Oracle is also providing free live sessions and online training running through April to help you get going. For example, next Monday (April 7) at 6:00pm UTC the session is about the “Internet of Things, Java and Raspberry Pi”. Plus, there is more help via online forums and other resources.

I just posted an expanded and updated Java ME 8 Deep Dive slide deck on SlideShare.

(apologies for the partially messed up colors and slides, SlideShare is going that during the conversion process ;-( )

I’m excited to be on my way to JavaLand, the brand-new German Java Community Conference. Will be speaking tomorrow, March 26 at 2 pm, on the topic of Desktop to Internet of Things in 12 Seconds.

Should be a great conference & hope to see you there!

Gemalto sm

 I totally forgot to post this announcement by Gemalto and Qualcomm from CES. Yes, it’s a few weeks old, but it has not lost any of its relevance. Quite the opposite … with the Java ME 8 release coming up soon, the momentum is building:

“Gemalto launches next generation M2M product range adding Oracle Java ME 8 solutions capability based on chipsets from Qualcomm Technologies”

For more information, see the Gemalto press release.

Update 3/20/2014: Added notes for b54 drop.

As announced 2 weeks ago, we have started semi-regular developer drops of Java ME 8.

Developer Drop b54 was just pushed out today. 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”:

Note: It is recommended to use the NetBeans 8 RC1 or NetBeans 8 GA “All” bundle together with the latest Java ME SDK 8 developer build.

 

Change of Device Access API in the b54:

  • The Device Access API name and namespace has been changed to Device I/O (DIO) in preparation for the Java ME 8 final release. This requires that you update the package imports in your application. The latest DIO documentation can be found here.

Notes on changes for the Qualcomm IoE platform in b54:

  • The previously separate Netsetup BrewMP application has been removed and the functionality has been integrated into the Java runtime. Network setup for WiFi/3G is now done as part of the Java runtime initialization.
  • A new BrewMP application called reboot_java has been added. It is optional and can be used to trigger a soft reboot (Java reboot without board reboot).
  • Network setup, AccessPoint API, and Cellular API functionality has been improved/made more complete. 

Questions/feedback? Java ME Embedded OTN forum or java-me-embedded-feedback_ww_grp@oracle.com
