ENABLING OPEN SOURCE JAVA FOR EMBEDDED SYSTEMS Wind River ® , the leading embedded Linux provider, and Azul Systems, a leading open source Java vendor, have teamed up to offer Zulu Embedded, a customizable, multi-platform Open Source Java solution for the industry-leading embedded Linux. Zulu Embedded plus Wind River Linux provide the following to embedded developers and IoT project teams: • A proven development and runtime environment for x86, Arm ® , MIPS, and PowerPC • Compatibility and compliance with the Java SE standards for JDK 11, 8, 7, and 6 • Industry-leading support from the globally dispersed Azul support team • The flexibility of open source, eliminating the risk of proprietary lock-in WHY JAVA FOR EMBEDDED? Java is a mature, flexible, portable, and powerful software development and runtime platform, with a large worldwide developer community. While Java is widely used across the enterprise, it has also been proven in a wide variety of applications and use cases. It is ideally suited to developing embedded applications ranging from industrial automation to consumer devices, plus everything in between. If you are enhancing an existing Java-based product or starting a new design, Java helps product teams get high-performance designs built and tested quickly. Like Linux, Java's strengths are in the richness of the platform; the large number of avail- able libraries; the ability to get as close to the hardware as is needed (via Java Native Interface); and the fact that Java developers can be more productive, knowing that the application they prototype on one platform can be migrated to and debugged from another. Today's Java is fast and modular—the platform contains optimizing JIT compilers and choices in memory management technologies. Its modularity supports the use of compact profiles in JDK 8 or the jlink tool in Java 11 to build and deploy highly performant, small-footprint, robust applications on low-cost multi-core CPUs that are easy to design, implement, and maintain.
