- Oracle Java ME Embedded 8.2: Now even smaller!
- Oracle Java ME SDK 8.2: Now with Linux tooling support!
Check out the details in the blog entry of my college Alex Belokrylov.
Stay tuned for more Java ME Embedded-related announcements in the coming weeks.
I will be delivering a keynote at the Telematics Berlin 2015 conference:
May 11, 14:40: Enabling the Connected Car with Java: Smart and Secure
Connected Cars are becoming full-fledged members of the Internet, requiring local intelligence and applications, advanced connectivity, and comprehensive security. Learn why Java Embedded is enabling high-volume connected car deployments today:
- Provides a proven, secure, and flexible in-vehicle platform for advanced software functionality and business logic, coupled with easy cloud integration
- Enables an efficient software model for rapid software innovation, software reuse, modularity, and secure in-field updates
- Leverages the large Java ecosystem of code, developers, and partners to increase the overall business value of the connected car solution
Oracle is a Gold Sponsor to this event. You can save €100 on the registration using discount code “2706SPK”
The recording of the webcast is now available here.
MicroDoc and Oracle will be doing a joint webcast today on the topic of Java in the Connected Car. Join us to learn about the challenges of connecting vehicles and mobile services, how Java is designed to meet these challenges, and how MicroDoc can help deploying solutions.
The webcast is free, but you need to register.

- 10/8/14: JavaOne CON6222 presentation and sample code available
- 10/3/14: Update on tooling with Java ME Embedded 8.1 Developer Preview
Announcing Oracle Java ME Embedded 8.1 Developer Preview for Freescale FRDM-K64F
Java ME 8 is purpose-designed to bring Java-powered software intelligence to a wide range of embedded devices – scaling all the way down to resource-constrained micro-controllers. Since the release of Java ME 8 a few months ago we’ve seen tremendous interest in the industry in leveraging Java as the software platform to bring the next generation of functionality and flexibility to embedded systems and the Internet of Things.
What is it?
The Freescale FRDM-K64F is built around the Kinetis K64F with 120 MHz, 256 KB RAM/1 MB Flash, running ARM mbed OS and with an Arduino form-factor and pin-out. A popular prototyping platform for both the mbed and Arduino communities, now joining forces with the Java ecosystem.
The Oracle Java ME Embedded 8.1 Developer Preview on FRDM-K64F offers:
- A feature-rich and optimized Java ME 8 runtime in 190 KB RAM, enabling highly functional Java Embedded applications on single-chip micro-controller systems
- Out-of-the-box support for Java 8 language, core APIs, networking, device I/O, storage, and more
- Simple installation with a complete and ready-to-run binary, just copy it onto the device
- Rich development and tooling via Java ME SDK 8.1 and NetBeans 8 IDE
- Complements existing Java ME 8 platforms such as Raspberry Pi, scaling Java ME 8 from large to small
- Ideal for evaluation and prototyping of small embedded & IoT solutions
Presentation: For more information and background have a look at the short slide deck “Introduction to Oracle Java ME Embedded 8.1 Developer Preview”.
So grab a FRDM-K64F board from your favorite electronics shop or distributor, download the Developer Preview, and get started! Head over to the Java ME Embedded OTN forum to ask questions.
And finally, if you are watching the JavaOne 2014 Java Technical Keynote keep your eyes peeled for those little FRDM boards running Java ME 8 … ;-)
Be sure to sign up for two embedded Java Events and Webinars this week – I will be participating in both:
- Free Webinar with Vinicius Senger on embedded Java ME and the IoT Developer Challenge: Today, May 5th, 11 am – 1 pm PDT
- Virtual Developer Day – Java: A day chock-full of the latest Java content, including embedded Java: Tomorrow, May 6th, starting at 9 am PDT
If other timezones for the Virtual Developer Day suit you better, there will also be sessions in EMEA on May 14th and APAC on May 21st. Find out more here.
