Java ME 8: Bringing Java to the Internet of Things
We are on the cusp of the 3rd IT revolution where embedded systems are dramatically expanding their reach, adding unprecedented processing capabilities and connectivity to create the Internet of Things (IoT). Java ME 8 defines a new Java standard (JSR 360 + 361) for a purpose-built embedded platform to meet the needs of the Internet of Things for robust, highly functional, flexible, cross-platform software intelligence. Java ME 8 is aligned with Java SE 8 and scales from very small microcontroller devices up to powerful embedded systems. In this talk, we introduce the main goals and features of Java ME 8, including software provisioning and management, the services model, and the concept of platform "right-sizing" with Profile Sets.
