Challenge Ends on Friday!

This is your last chance to win a JavaOne trip. Submit a project video and code for the IoT Developer Challenge by this Friday, May 30.  12 JavaOne trips will be awarded to 3 professional teams and one student team. Members of two student teams will win laptops and certification training vouchers.


Ask your last minute questions on the coaching form or the Challenge forum. They will be answered promptly. Your project video should explain how your project works. Any common video format such as mp4, avi, mov is fine.


Your project must use Java Embedded - whether it is Java SE Embedded or ME Embedded - with the hardware of your choice, including any devices, boards and IoT technology. The project will be judged based on the project implementation, innovation and business usefulness. More details on the IoT Developer Challenge website 


Just for fun! Here is a video of Vinicius Senger giving a tour of his home lab, and showing his boards and gadgets.

Technical Article: Experimenting with Java Timers

OTN's new tech article is "Experimenting with Java Timers" by T. Lamine Ba. This article studies time—how Java handles timers and the scheduling of tasks. Java timers are utilities that let you execute threads or tasks at a predetermined future time, and these tasks can be repeated according to a set frequency.

The article starts with a simple "Hello World" program in a web application that's composed of JavaServer Pages (JSP) and uses the model-control-view (MVC) design pattern. The IDE used in this article is NetBeans IDE 7.1, but you can use any IDE that supports Java.

"Experimenting with Java Timers" demonstrates how to get started scheduling jobs with Java. To learn about Swing timers, check out the Java tutorial "How to Use Swing Timers" and additional information in the Java Platform, Standard Edition 7 API Specification for Class Timer
