Java SE Embedded 8 is Now Available

Java SE Embedded 8 

In addition to Java SE 8, Oracle has also announced the General Availability of Oracle Java SE Embedded 8. It provides a development platform for embedded devices and the Internet of Things, with all of the flexibility, portability and robust features available in the Java SE Platform.

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.

See Java in Action at SXSW

Java will be on display at SXSW, empowering developers and robots alike. See how Java is uniquely suited to support the Internet of Things at these presentations:

On Sunday, March 9th, at 3pm Angela Caidedo, Java Technology Evangelist, will show the Java Duchess Segway in "Beyond Beauty: JavaFX, Parallax, Touch Raspberry Pi, Gyroscopes, and Much More." She* is a Java SE Embedded-powered, self-balancing robot built using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3. (*Ambiguous pronoun reference intentional.)

On Monday, March 10, Nandini Ramani, VP of Java Development, will show how "Java Empowers the Internet of Things" at 3pm and how to "Navigate the Internet of Things" at 5pm.  

You can also see Java in Action at the Oracle Discovery Lounge at the Waller Creek Boathouse.  There will be demos, food, drink and cool air! Play a Java-powered, Twitter-enabled smart darts game. Join us for a (invitation only) reception Friday night. You can meet and get your picture taken with some of the crew of Oracle Team USA who won the America’s Cup. Oracle Discovery Lounge will be open 11am-7pm Saturday March 8 to Monday March 10.

Develop Java Applications Using a Raspberry Pi

Ready to dive into the Internet of Things? Take the new, free, online course "Develop Java Embedded Applications Using a Raspberry Pi." The Oracle Learning Library has created this course which provides code, examples, and experts to teach you and answer your questions.

Java experts Stephen Chin, Jim Weaver, Simon Ritter, Angela Caicedo, and Tom McGinn will lead you through basic exercises. Each week, you'll get a new set of course materials:

  • A series of short, pre-recorded videos provide the "lecture" portion of the course.
  • A homework project is linked to the video material, and applies what you have learned by working with Java ME Embedded, the Raspberry Pi, and some electronic components.
  • A graded quiz evaluates how well you have grasped the materials and the homework.

Order your equipment now so you can have it in time for the course start on March 31st!

Here are a few FAQs (You can send questions or comments to Java-MOOC-Support.)

Q: Is the course free or do we have to pay for it?

A: The course is free. There is hardware you have in order to complete the labs (homework) but the course materials are free.

Q: It starts end of March and goes on for five weeks, but how often / how long will sessions occur? 5x 1hour? Or 25 full days? At what time will the sessions occur? 

A: This course is delivered entirely on-line.  There are no set times for sessions because the training is in pre-recorded video that you can watch anytime, anywhere.  Each week Oracle will release the materials for that week, and you should expect to spend between 4 and 6 hours each week on the lessons, the labs and the quizzes.

Q: Is there anything special about the kit (e.g. parts that are just for the MOOC that you wouldn't normally be able to buy)? 

A: The parts for the MOOC are only special in that they represent the use case presented by the course, that of an asset management system designed to provide data on container shipments of fresh produce: container door access (switch), temperature (I2c), global position (UART), and of course a RaspberryPi and breadboard as the development platform. The devices are available through Adafruit and relatively inexpensive.

Rainbows and Unicorns at the Devoxx OTN Hack Fest

At the OTN Hack Fest at Devoxx, several developers did their first "hello world" with the Internet of Things (IoT). They had fun and built basic applications with Java Embedded, Raspberry Pi and Leap Motion controllers. Experts Yara & Vinicius Senger and Geert Bevin provided the basics and support. Senior Developer from ZeroTurnaround Geert Bevin did a bit of hacking too. Check out this video to see what he came up with in an hour:

Video: Java Powers the Smart Home

How much control do you want to have over everything in your home? With Java, you can control lights, cameras and appliances easily. You can even determine when to run the washing machine based on the cost of power! In this video, Engineer Volker Bauche shows Java powering sensors around a smart home. From the DEMOgrounds of JavaOne 2013, by Tori Wieldt.

Getting Started with Oracle Java ME Embedded 3.3 on the Keil Evaluation Board

The new release this week of Oracle Java ME Embedded 3.3 for ARM Cortex M3 make the Oracle Java ME Embedded product available as a reference binary for the Keil MCBSTM32F200 platform for development/evaluation purposes. This binary comes integrated with RTX OS. To help you get up and running, Oracle Java Evangelist Angela Caicedo has created a new two part video that shows you all the steps you need to follow to develop your first applications using Java ME Embedded 3.3 on the Keil evaluation board.

Video: Getting Started with Java ME Embedded 3.3 Part One


   Part I

This new tutorial video provides the step-by-step guide to get Oracle Java ME Embedded for ARM Cortex M3 up and running on the on Keil evaluation board: from the configuration of the software and hardware, and how to    test; how to connect to the command line and logging interfaces; and of course how to get started with this Java ME Embedded application. Angela walks us through how to install, update and even uninstall the application.


Video: Getting Started with Java ME Embedded 3.3 Part Two


Part Two

In the second video, Caicedo uses Netbeans 7.3 with Oracle Java ME SDK 3.3 NetBeans Plugin, Java ME SDK 3.3 (early access) and the Oracle Java ME Embedded 3.3 for ARM Cortex M3/RTX software distribution to create an embedded application, run it on an emulator and provides tips on how you can debug your application. Then using these tools you will be taken through the steps to create your first application, deploy it, and test that everything is running properly.

Oracle Java ME Embedded 3.3 complete product functionality such as peripheral IO, AMS operations, headless operations, functionality for remote application management/configurability, etc. is available on the Keil MCBSTM32F200 platform. Download and see the documentation on OTN to learn more.

Java Shows Off at Embedded World

James Allen of Oracle's Global Market Development Group shows some of the examples of how Java can work from devices to the data center. With the explosion of the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) space, thousands of smart devices will be connected to each other and to a data collector. See how Java is scalable, can run on devices, the middle tier, and the backend. From the floor of Embedded World 2013.
