OpenJDK DIO Project Now Live! Java SE Embedded API Accessing Peripherals

The DIO project on OpenJDK is now live! For those who grew up in the 1970's and 1980's, you might remember Ronnie James Dio, lead singer of Black Sabbath after Ozzy was fired, and lead singer of his own band, Dio. Well, this DIO is not that Dio.

This DIO is the OpenJDK Device I/O project which provides a Java-level API for accessing generic device peripherals on embedded devices, like your Raspberry Pi running Java SE Embedded software.

See:

OpenJDK DIO Project

Here's a quote:

  + General Purpose Input/Output 
    (GPIO)
  + Inter-Integrated Circuit Bus 
    (I2C)
  + Universal Asynchronous 
    Receiver/Transmitter (UART)
  + Serial Peripheral Interface
If you're familiar with Pi4J, then you're going to like DIO. And, if you liked Ozzy, you probably liked Ronnie James Dio.

This will probably make Robert Savage happy too. The part about DIO being live now, not the part about Dio replacing Ozzy, because everyone likes Ozzy.

Comments:

Is DIO going to be API-compatible with the Java ME APIs so developers can target both environments from a single code base?

Hi Yeroc, yes DIO will be API-compatible with the Java ME APIs for the very reason you give.

Thanks for the question,
Hinkmond
