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.
