The new middleware is set to arrive two weeks after Intel debuts a new embedded framework for embedded systems, bundling its PC management code along with software from its McAfee and Wind River divisions.

"Intel is reflecting what we also see as the desire for a complete embedded software stack so people don't have to worry about the nuts and bolts when so many new devices are emerging," said the spokesman.

"Java still has a role to play on top of what [Intel] offers," said the spokesman. "Oracle is coming from the applications down while Intel is coming from the chip up, and I think we are complementary at the end of the day," he said.

"The rapid growth of the Internet of Things is increasing demand for the delivery and deployment of standard based applications which are capable of collecting and managing data and data traffic from numerous embedded devices," said Nandini Ramani, vice president of engineering for Java Client and Mobile Platforms at Oracle, speaking in a press statement.

More than 3 billion devices now support Java, and the software is downloaded more than 1 billion times a year, Oracle said.
