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

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 (4/17/15):

The recording of the webcast is now available here.

Quick note:

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.

This is bigAt JavaOne a few weeks ago, Oracle made available the Java ME 8.1 Developer Preview release for the Freescale FRDM-K64F (“Java ME 8.1 in 190 KB RAM”) and announced the upcoming full release of Java ME Embedded 8.1 (press release).

On Monday this week, we followed up as promised and posted the General Availability (GA) releases of Oracle Java ME 8.1 and the Oracle ME SDK 8.1.

Oracle Java ME Embedded 8.1 and ME SDK 8.1 New Features and Enhancements

  • Support for ARM Cortex-M3/-M4 micro-controllers
  • Updated Raspberry Pi support 
  • Updated Developer Preview on FRDM-K64 with mbed
  • Improved support for two additional Qualcomm Gobi device families
  • New communication, security, and networking features
  • New support for Eclipse IDE, including major update of the Eclipse MTJ plugin
  • Developer improvements: Tooling over USB, heap analysis, faster communication
  • A number of smaller enhancements and fixes

Java 8: Truly Scalable

With this release, Java ME 8 now fully lives up to its design promise of delivering a feature-rich Java 8 platform that scales from powerful embedded systems all the way down to resource-constrained singe-chip micro-controllers with as little as 128 KB of RAM.

Developers can now rely on a consistent, standards-based programming model and platform that allows true code reuse from large to small solutions … in most cases the same, unmodified application binary will run across the entire range of target devices – irrespective of the underlying hardware and software differences. This means faster time-to-market, improved security and flexibility, and the ability to deliver more product value, faster

No other embedded software technology can do that today.

Call to Action

Java ME 8: Making the programmable, scalable, and secure Internet of Things a reality!

The Oracle Java ME documentation team has put together a short survey (7 questions) to help us understand better what type of Java ME documentation you are looking for and how we can improve it.

You’d do us a great favor (and, ultimately, yourself ;-) by quickly filling in the survey!

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.
