In an attempt to get a bigger slice of the embedded software pie, Oracle has released a run-time version of Java geared towards microcontrollers and a suite of Java services aimed at a broad set of gateways and other embedded devices.

Oracle Java Micro Edition Embedded 3.2 is geared towards systems with less than a megabyte of memory and as little as 130KB RAM and 350KB ROM, especially those based on ARM Cortex-M and Cortex-A cores. The run-time is a variant of the Oracle Java Wireless Client, now also in release 3.2.

A developer's kit for the embedded code has also been released by Oracle. The platform targets a wide range of industrial, consumer and energy systems, particularly in machine-to-machine (M2M) applications. Oracle also released a software developer's kit for the embedded code.

Cinterion Wireless Modules will demonstrate cellular modules using the code at Oracle's JavaOne event next week. Separately, Oracle is talking to microcontroller vendors about deals to bundle the software, but does not expect any announcements at show.

In addition, Oracle has released its Java Embedded Suite 7.0, a package containing the GlassFish Web server, Jersey Web services framework and Java DB all based on Java Standard Edition 7. It is available in versions for Linux on ARM and x86 processors.

The suite aims to speed development of embedded systems such as network appliances, medical devices, home gateways and routers and large peripherals such as multi-function printers.
