Hi all,

Oracle Java ME Embedded targets medium/high-end connected microcontrollers and scales down to 192 kB RAM and 1 MB ROM, see:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/embedded/overview/javame/index.html

We have prototypes running in much smaller configurations; down to 8 kB RAM. However, that is not currently a target configuration for us since we want to offer a platform with a comprehensive feature set in areas such as connectivity, management and security. For more details on these features, see:

http://docs.oracle.com/javame/embedded/embedded.html

Regards,

Henrik Stahl, VP Product Management, Java Platform Group, Oracle

Java Baggage and Security?

Seems to me that Java carries significant overhead that may not make it a good IoT target. Perhaps I'm dated on this point. Anyone have some data on good MCU implementations and memory size (and needs for dynamic structures)?

Also- the recent posts here on EETimes on IoT have been fairly focused on the need for improved security. Will Java satisfy this requirement? Any efficient security structures already in Java (probably are if $ transactions are being processed all the time). Anyone care to clarify?

I like Freescale and would think that others should jump on the Java bandwagon.  Having a streamlined Java for the smaller devices while allowing for IoT features will be a great enabler for growth in both the market and in applications.  Which vendor will be next with Java support, I wonder?

I think that Oracle is going in the correct direction. The company has chosen a right partner for the microcontroller/processor platform such as Freescale. As mentioned in this article, size is one of the key factors for IoT space. If the sized down version of embedded Have could be fit with in a couple of KB of the smallest controller, nothing better than that. But security is another important factor. Hope to see some good progress in this domain.

What's your glue of choice for cobbling together diverse IoT nodes?
