Wind River: VxWorks brings benefits of Java to embedded development
Wind River introduces Micro Runtime for VxWorks, which adds Java application support to our portfolio that also includes C/C++ support. IoT developers can use Micro Runtime to design applications bringing the benefits of Java to embedded development such as increased development efficiency and code portability, and over-the-air bug fixes saving money and creating new revenue opportunities.
Micro Runtime provides an optimized embedded Java runtime engine enabling our customers to leverage the skills of millions of Java developers and also reuse applications to run on their existing VxWorks investment. Micro Runtime also solves the typical Java support issue faced by small footprint and resource constrained embedded devices. Specifically, Micro Runtime is a complete solution with the Java runtime engine and an Eclipse-based full software development kit on a Windows or Linux host to develop, debug and deploy Java applications for VxWorks-based devices.
This is the latest in a series of enhancements. The security, safety, networking, connectivity, device manageability, user interface, and graphics capabilities included in VxWorks are what companies today require to create the most demanding devices for the IoT.
