JBox Embedded J2SE Platform
June 24, 2005
This week, VIA announced what it describes as the world's first x86 platform for embedded J2SE development - the violently orange JBox™. It's a collaborative effort between VIA, Sun and custom solutions provider iGoLogic.
"[The JBox™] makes embedded x86 far more accessible to Java developers for the first time", said VIA's Associate Vice President of Marketing, Richard Brown.
Those present at the JavaOne conference in San Francisco next week will be able to attend the official product launch. For the benefit of the rest of us, the unit consists of what appears to be a fairly standard 1GHz EPIA M10000 board, coupled with a 40GB notebook drive and RAM options up to 1GB. Embedded Java applications are developed with a pre-installed copy of SUN's J2SE 5.0 platform, while the underlying operating system choices are Sun's Solaris 10, with either CDE or JDS3 preconfigured, or a Linux 2.6 OS customised by iGoLogic.
Prices are not yet known, but the device is expected to be available in July 2005. More info.
