This talk tells the story of Java for embedded applications. Java originated from the desire for portable application code to run across a panoply of available processor families. That desire remains hot today, especially with the explosion of low cost, fully capable processors and cut down OS distributions. We will walk through the realities of doing embedded Java development, expose the breadth of choices to make in boards and setups, and show the ways that modern Java Standard Edition is leveraged to the hilt. Also important to discuss is the trajectory on which Java 9 will rocket, so we look into the implications of Project Jigsaw on the embedded application development approach.
