ARM TechCon 2013: Oracle Summary from Henrik Stahl

Henrik Stahl posted a good blog post summary of Oracle's involvement at last week's ARM TechCon 2013 in Santa Clara, Calif.

Lots of new and interesting items to note from this year's conference.


ARM TechCon 2013 Summary

Here's a quote:

 If you have been following Java 
 news, you are already aware of 
 the fact that there has been a 
 lot of investment in Java for 
 ARM-based devices and servers 
 over the last couple of years...
Good stuff related to Java Embedded on ARM chips, but even better stuff coming soon... Stay tuned.

Gigaom Article on Oracle, Freescale, and the push for Java on Internet of Things (IoT)

Here's an interesting article that came out during JavaOne which talks about the Oracle and Freescale partnership, where we are putting Java technology onto the Freescale i.MX6 based "one box" gateway.


Oracle and Prosyst team up

Here's a quote:

 When it comes to connected devices, there’s
 still plenty of debate over the right 
 operating system, the correct protocols 
 for sending data and even the basics of 
 where processing will take place — on 
 premise or in the cloud.

 This might seem esoteric, but if you’re 
 waiting for your phone to unlock your 
 front door, that round trip to the cloud 
 or a fat OS isn’t going to win accolades
 if you’re waiting in the rain. With all 
 of this in mind, Oracle and Freescale 
 have teamed up to offer an appliance 
 and a Java-based software stack for the 
 internet of things. 
The first version of the "one box" will work in the connected smart home, but soon after that, Oracle and Freescale will develop later boxes for other industries ranging from healthcare, smart grid to manufacturing.

Raspberry Pi Challenge at JavaOne 2013

Here's a cool part of the JavaOne Community Keynote. Go to timestamp 3:09 and see Tori and Donald talk about the Raspberry Pi Challenge that occurred during the JavaOne 2013 conference.

Then, of course, fast forward to timestamp 7:05 and see the T-shirt giveaway complete with Benny Hill music. Fun!

And finally James Gosling wraps it up with his update from Liquid Robotics, a great use case for Java Embedded.


JavaOne 2013 Community Keynote

Java Embedded and the JavaOne Community. Too much fun for everyone!

Java Embedded and IoT at JavaOne

Hopefully you were able to attend JavaOne this year and hear the exciting news about Java Embedded and the Internet of Things (IoT). You're going to start seeing a lot more network-connected devices coming online over the next 10 the tens of billions (yes, that's with a B). Many of these will be Java-powered and/or connected to devices running Java. For more information, I encourage you to take a look at these two keynote sessions relating to IoT and Java Embedded. One is Edward Screven, Oracle Cheif Corporate Architect's "IoT Keynote" and the other is the Freescale JavaOne Keynote.

JavaONE Mobility General Sessions

If you missed JavaONE this year (or even if you didn't, but missed some of the general sessions), you can listen to the general sessions which focused on Java ME at the JavaONE website. The two mobility general sessions are the Mobility General Session hosted by Alan Brenner from day 1, and the Motorola General Session: Java and Mobile: The Next Big Thing from day 3. The Mobility General Session discusses the evolution of Java ME and how developers can take advantage of new capabilities in Java ME to build new mobile and embedded applications. And in the Motorola General Session: Java and Mobile: The Next Big Thing session, Motorola discusses some of the "next big things" in mobile and how the Java development community can help drive the and accelerate next-generation mobile applications. Check them out when you get a chance.


Mobility Pack for CDC 5.5 Preview Updated

All users that want to develop CDC/PP/AGUI applications for the SavaJe Jasper S20 please download the update 1 of the NetBeans Mobility Pack 5.5 Preview for CDC. The new build contains a few fixes that were discovered during the JavaOne conference. You can now develop applications using the free design layout and deploy them to the phone without problems. The bug with wrong packaging has been fixed.

SavaJe Java Phone

In case you didn't hear, SavaJe announced an all Java phone at JavaOne, the Jasper S20. In fact, the Jasper was the JavaOne conference device this year. The phone is based on the Java API's, including the 'close to being finalized' JSR-209 Advanced Graphical User Interface, or AGUI for short. AGUI provides a subset of JavaSE's Swing components for building rich UI's on mobile devices. This phone is a GSM device which isn't just for showing how well a phone works with the Java CDC stack. If you don't need another phone, but are interested in Java, then this phone makes a great development/proof of concept/testing platform. You can even get the SavaJe development environment, which integrates with the NetBeans IDE for easy development and deployment of your Java applications. A must have for any JavaME developer.

NetBeans Mobility Pack 5.5 Preview For CDC

This week, at JavaOne, Sun released the NetBeans Mobility Pack 5.5 Preview for CDC. This is a NetBeans module which provides support for the JavaME CDC platform. It also provides support for the new Advanced Graphical User Interface (AGUI, JSR-209) specification, which provides a subset of JavaSE's Swing components for the CDC platform. This lets you build rich UI applications for CDC. If you're developing for JavaME, you'll want to take a look at the capabilities of CDC. The NetBeans Mobility Pack 5.5 Preview for CDC is a great way to do that.

Disappearing BlackBerries

Since BlackBerries are on the endangered species list now with the pending injunction against RIM, Russell de Pina has a way to combat his addition to CrackBerry.


Break the BlackBerry habit


 Even so, I personally have been working 
 on my own Java (J2ME) based email 
 client that will use the networking 
 capabilities of my Blackberry phone 
 to access my email servers in the same 
 manner as any other computer to get 
 around the now toothless NTP patents.

Free SunStudio and NetBeans Developer Support

For a limited time, you can get free Sun Studio 11 and NetBeans 5.0 developer support by trying out the Beta version of the Sun Developer Network's "Expert Assistance for Developers" website. This service provides expert technical assistance straight from an engineer to you. You'll get your question answered within 24 hours. This service is free for the duration of the beta period, so sign up and try it now.

NetBeans 5.0 and the Mobility Pack

If you don't know already, NetBeans 5.0 was recently released. 5.0 is a major release of the NetBeans IDE and adds some great new features. However, if you're a JavaME programmer, you \*have\* to check out the Mobility Pack. The Mobility Pack gives you a great tool for creating JavaME applications. For example, for programmers who build applications for multiple Java devices (e.g. different mobile phones) it can be difficult to manage the various capabilities on the phone. You'd like to be able to write code which is common to all phones, but also be able to easily include and manage code specific to certain phones. The Mobility Pack gives you the ability to specify that certain code only pertains to one or more specific phones. This lets you write your application for all phones using one Java file and let the build process take care of including and not including sections of code for your target device. A life saver.
