With Java, we can reuse all the skills and experience gained in Enterprise Application Development Projects such as JDBC and JEE6 and soon, we will even be able to use JavaFX on ARM architectures too
Perth, Western Australia (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
On Friday 15th of March, Pablo Rodriguez Pina, founder and co-director of the Perth (Western Australia) based software company announced the company is evaluating different technologies and hardware to develop software for embedded systems running on Linux / ARM.
The company, which specializes in Enterprise Application Development using the Java Platform announced it will be analysing the different Java platforms aimed at resource constrained devices for developing cross platform embedded systems.
The Java Platform, which is available for embedded devices offers a variety of runtime environments aimed at running java bytecode on resource constrained devices.
- Java Platform Micro Edition - Aimed at Devices with RAM ranges between 0 and 32 Mb.
- Java SE Embedded - For Embedded Devices with more than 32 Mb RAM
- Java SE for ARM - The standard JDK for ARM CPUs.
Pablo Rodriguez explained the reasons for the decision: “We have been working with technologies such as JDBC, JPA, JEE and Web Containers for over a decade. With the new release of Java SE Embedded we can now run GlassFish, Java DB, Web Services, Client / Server communication and more in single board ARM computers with 1GB RAM, USB ports, HDMI and ethernet ports. We can write code using Java 7 features and reuse any shared code in an ARM board or in a web server. We see a great opportunity here”
With Oracle’s HotSpot technology using machine code in-lining and just-in-time compilation Java applications can offer performance similar to C or C++ applications.
On the front end, the increasingly popular JavaFX Platform is now been made available for ARM / Linux devices such as the Raspberry Pi as part of the JDK8 project.
Pablo Rodriguez continued describing the benefits of the Java Platform: “With Java, we can reuse all the skills and experience gained in Enterprise Application Development Projects such as JDBC and JEE6 and soon, we will even be able to use JavaFX on ARM architectures too, this translates into a very cost effective and flexible usage of our developers skills, reusability on any in-house written libraries and the tranquility of having seen our code ported throughout different Operating systems and hardware architectures.”
