Java: The No. 1 Platform For IoT Development

Java: The No. 1 Platform For IoT Development

There were two interesting pieces of news this week related to the use of Java in embedded devices to help power the so-called “Internet of Things” (IoT).

The first is the results of a survey carried out by the Eclipse Foundation, (there’s also a slide deck) asking IoT developers about what they’re doing and what technologies they’re using for their projects. Let’s look at some of the key data points from this:

The second piece of news appeared on the Fedora mailing list reporting a huge improvement in JDK performance on ARM 32 architecture boards. This links back to the OpenJDK mailing list, which explains that engineers at Azul have recently pushed back changes that implement a port of the C1 compiler to the OpenJDK aarch32 port. Obviously, this makes Java an even better choice for embedded development now that the performance has significantly improved on the increasingly widely used ARM architecture.

Here at Azul, we’re always looking at ways to improve the performance of Java applications by making the JVM perform better. We have a strong commitment to the OpenJDK project and our Zulu binaries for both enterprise and embedded applications provide an excellent deployment option. Why not give it a go today?
