Java SE Embedded 8 and Compact Profiles

Java SE Embedded 8 is a new release of Java SE technology that for the first time has the feature of Compact Profiles.  There are three new Compact Profiles that represent three new, smaller Java SE Runtimes that are compatible subsets of the full Java SE 8 API specification. The Compact Profiles feature is useful in small devices, can be used to shorten the time to download an application from a download server, and makes for more compact deployment of Java applications that bundle the JRE. A JRE can be configured with a compact profile, reducing its footprint for deployment along with a compact profile application. Java SE Embedded 8 enables developers to create customized JREs using the JRECreate tool. Starting with Java SE Embedded 8, individual JRE downloads for embedded platforms are no longer provided. To get started, download an eJDK bundle suitable for your target platform and follow instructions to create a JRE that suits your application's needs.

Java SE 8 Features

Features and enhancements in Java SE 8 and in JDK 8, Oracle's implementation of Java SE 8 include:

• Lambda Expressions (JSR 335) - a new language feature introduced in Java SE 8. Lambdas enable you to treat functions as method arguments or code as data.

• Nashorn - a lightweight high-performance JavaScript runtime in 100% pure Java, native on the JVM, that enables Java developers to embed JavaScript in Java applications.

• Compact Profiles - predefined subsets of the Java SE platform that enable applications that do not require the entire Platform to be deployed and run on small devices.

• Stream API - Classes in the new java.util.stream package provide a Stream API to support functional-style (e.g. Filter/Map/Reduce) operations on streams of elements. The Stream API is integrated into the Collections API, which enables bulk operations on collections, such as sequential or parallel map-reduce transformations.

• Date & Time API (JSR 310) - a new set of packages that provide a comprehensive date-time model.

• Type Annotations (JSR 308) - provides the ability to apply an annotation anywhere a type is used, not just on a declaration. Used with a pluggable type system, this feature enables improved type checking of your code.

• Java Mission Control 5.3 –usability improvements to allow Java administrators and developers to more easily gather detailed low level information about how the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and the Java application are behaving; support for Java SE Embedded 8 (Full JRE Profile)

• JavaFX – features and enhancements include an embedded specific graphics stack, new UI controls, a Modena theme, functionality to enable developers to embed Swing content into JavaFX applications, new 3D graphics features, and additional HTML 5 support.

• Security Features and Enhancements

• … and much more.
