New Release: Java Micro Edition (ME) 8

April 30, 2014 By: Tori Wieldt

Today, Oracle announces the General Availability of Oracle Java Micro Edition 8. This release is the culmination of a two-year effort driving a major update of the Java ME technology as a modern embedded software platform, built as a foundation for new services in the Internet Of Things.

Java ME provides a robust, flexible environment for applications running on embedded and mobile: microcontrollers, sensors, gateways, mobile phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), TV set-top boxes, printers and more. It includes robust security, built-in network protocols, and support for networked and offline applications. Oracle Java ME Embedded 8 is an implementation of the recently approved Java ME 8 standard, and includes support of alignment with Java SE 8 language features and APIs, an enhanced services-enabled application platform, and the ability to right-size the platform to address a wide range of devices in the Internet of Things. Application development is supported through the Oracle Java ME SDK 8.
