Java ME SDK offers a purpose-built toolbox for embedded development. Both simulation and emulation are supported for a variety of devices. These features make it faster to get the product into market by parallel efforts to simulate and emulate before testing the hardware proper.
Immediately you can start off with Oracle Java ME Embedded 8(Oracle implementation of Java ME 8) available for Early Access for the following platforms:
- Raspberry Pi Model B (ARM 11)--http://www.raspberrypi.org/
- STMicroelectronics STM32F4Discovery(ARM Cortex-M4)
The early access programs costs nothing for evaluation and development under an Oracel license.
If you are thinking of becoming of becoming an embedded programmer make sure you read this very focussed article,
"How to become an embedded devveloper in minutes". Probably it takes more than minutes, perhaps more time as it involves software and hardware but that is what it takes.
Here is a screen shot of JAVA ME 8 Platform.
