Oracle releases embedded Java for 32-bit MCUs
Santa Clara, Ca. – Oracle has just released a run-time version of Java geared for microcontrollers and a suite of Java services aimed at a broad set of gateways and other embedded devices.
Oracle Java Micro Edition Embedded 3.2 is geared for systems with less than a Mbyte of memory and as little as 130 KBytes RAM and 350 KBytes ROM, especially those based on ARM Cortex-M and Cortex-A cores. The run-time is a variant of the Oracle Java Wireless Client, now also in release 3.2.
Oracle has also released a software developer’s kit for the embedded code. The platform targets a wide range of industrial, consumer and energy systems, particularly in machine-to-machine (M2M) applications. Oracle also released a software developer’s kit for the embedded code.
In addition, Oracle has released its Java Embedded Suite 7.0, a package containing the GlassFish Web server, Jersey Web services framework and Java DB all based on Java Standard Edition 7. It is available in versions for Linux on ARM and x86 processors.
The suite aims to speed development of embedded systems such as network appliances, medical devices, home gateways and routers and large peripherals such as multi-function printers.
“The rapid growth of the Internet of Things is increasing demand for the delivery and deployment of standard based applications which are capable of collecting and managing data and data traffic from numerous embedded devices,” said Nandini Ramani, vice president of engineering for Java Client and Mobile Platforms at Oracle.
