Sun's new Java SE for Embedded releases that were recently (early
May, just before [JavaOne 2008|http://java.sun.com/javaone/sf/index.jsp]) made available for free evaluation.
All Java SE for Embedded free evaluations that are available at this time
can be accessed through:
Implementations are being provided for the following operating platforms:
- Linux/ARM (3 versions)
- Linux/MIPS (3 versions)
- Linux/PowerPC (2 versions)
- Windows XP-Embedded
What is Java SE for Embedded? It is essentially Java SE with many
optional components removed to help reduce both RAM footprint and
ROM/flash/disk footprint (making this product particularly suitable for
deployment on high-end embedded devices). Since all components
being required by the Java SE specification are available, Java SE for
Embedded implementations are, indeed, Java SE compatible. This,
also leads to an important benefit: portability of Java SE applications
across both Java SE platforms and Java SE for Embedded platforms.
When you select a Java SE for Embedded eval through the above URL,
the download link will be provided to you after you fill out a quick survey
and agree to a click-through, 90-days e-license.
