Demo Abstract: A Java compatible virtual machine for wireless sensor nodes
Brouwers, Niels, Corke, Peter, & Langendoen, Koen (2008) Demo Abstract: A Java compatible virtual machine for wireless sensor nodes. In SenSys '08 ; Proceedings of the 6th ACM conference on Embedded network sensor systems, ACM, Sheraton Raleigh Hotel, Raleigh, North Carolina, pp. 369-370.
The Java programming language has potentially significant advantages for wireless sensor nodes but there is currently no feature-rich, open source virtual machine available. In this paper we present Darjeeling, a system comprising offline tools and a memory efficient run-time. The offline post-compiler tool analyzes, links and consolidates Java class files into loadable modules. The runtime implements a modified Java VM that supports multithreading and is designed specifically to operate in constrained execution environments such as wireless sensor network nodes and supports inheritance, threads, garbage collection, and loadable modules. We have demonstrated Java running on AVR128 and MSP430 microcontrollers at speeds of up to 70,000 JVM instructions per second.
