Java Display Computing on Intelligent Displays
demmel products announces the release of its on-board Java Virtual Machine (Java VM) at the embedded world 2017. iLCD Panels can now also be programmed in Java.
iLCD panels can now be programmed in Java, enabling "Display Computing" for the first time on intelligent displays with an object oriented programming language and without an operating system. The lean Java VM running on-board the iLCD controller executes the compiled Java code. In many cases, an external micro-controller is no longer necessary to control a whole application. The Java application running on the display can also take over external control functions, which helps to significantly simplify the hardware design. New hardware is unnecessary, and the Java Virtual Machine can also be used on existing iLCDs.
The iLCD Manager XE is available for download at no charge, and has been extended to accommodate the Java development environment including editor, compiler and debugger. As with other IDEs, comfortable Java code editing with syntax highlighting is supported. The Java application can be generated with the integrated compiler, and subsequently uploaded directly onto the display via the USB interface.
An integrated debugger to enable remote debugging of the Java application directly on the display via USB has also been added. Common features like breakpoints and variable inspection are available as well. The entire development and debug environment can be accessed immediately by simply installing or updating the iLCD Manager XE. There is no additional software or hardware required.
Experience demmel’s Java applications running on the iLCDs and in the iLCD Simulator at the embedded world 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany, from March 14-16. We look forward to your visit at our Booth 371 in Hall 1.
