Java Communications API and Serial Ports Live Forever with Java Embedded

"I love Java technology! But, I have split-personality disorder. No, I don't. Yes, I do..."
Here's one of the Dr. Dobb's bloggers, Al Williams, expressing his love-hate relationship with Java Embedded technology and serial ports.
Here's a quote:
The lines, however, are blurring between all the different kinds of systems. You almost can't avoid Java somewhere. The Arduino uses Java internally. So does Eclipse. Many data acquisition systems need to connect over a network and Java works well for that, either on the device or running on a host PC (or even a Raspberry Pi).Good for you, Al! At least you know Java technology on small embedded devices is there and ready for you whenever you come around and warm up to Java Embedded.
