Azul Systems Launches Zulu Embedded OpenJDK Based Java Platform

Stuart Parkerson Stuart Parkerson in IoT Sunday, March 29, 2015

Azul Systems is launching Zulu Embedded, a new offering for developers in the embedded, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) markets offering open source, customizable, reduced-footprint, and standards compliant Java SE runtimes and development solutions.
Zulu Embedded is new OpenJDK-based Java platform for embedded, mobile, and IoT designs offered through an open source & customizable Java SE solution, compliant with Java versions 6, 7, and 8. The product targets embedded systems developers who want standards compliant, fully tested and lower-cost Java solutions for their existing and next-generation designs and IoT developers who have not considered Java in the past due to footprint, complexity, or licensing cost concerns.
Zulu Embedded allows developers to utilize a Java SE standards compliant package to suit specific support and configuration needs, including tailoring by:
- Target operating system
- 32 or 64-bit architecture
- Java version (6, 7, or 8)
- Installed image footprint
- Headless or headful configuration
- Distribution and packaging options
- Required Java components
Each Zulu Embedded build is verified by Azul using the Java Community Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK) and other testing necessary for long-term embedded use. Pricing models are flexible, and include per device, per user, flat rate and customer-specific plans.
