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”

Update:

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.

Today, we are accelerating the adoption of Java ME 8 with a Developer Preview of Oracle Java ME Embedded 8.1 on ARM Cortex-M4 devices, in collaboration with Freescale and ARM.

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

What next?

Presentation: For more information and background have a look at the short slide deck “Introduction to Oracle Java ME Embedded 8.1 Developer Preview”.

Download: The Java ME Embedded 8.1 Developer Preview and the corresponding Java ME SDK 8.1 Early Access #3 are available NOW on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN).

Documentation: The release comes with Release Notes and Getting Started Guide for FRDM-K64F. There is also a full set of Java ME 8 documentation.

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 … ;-)
