Websprocket, a provider of software and software tools for networked devices, today announced VMFoundry(TM), a new software technology, that enables Java applications to run without an operating system operating system (OS)
Software that controls the operation of a computer, directs the input and output of data, keeps track of files, and controls the processing of computer programs. and directly on hardware.
This new technology will be unveiled at JavaOne, the leading Java Developers Conference sponsored by Sun Microsystems Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: JAVA) is an American vendor of computers, computer components, computer software, and information-technology services, founded on 24 February 1982. , Inc., June 6th - 9th, in Booth No. 1132, Moscone Center The Moscone Center is San Francisco, California's largest convention and exhibition complex. The complex consists of two main underground halls underneath Yerba Buena Gardens, Moscone North and Moscone South, as well the three-level Moscone West exhibition hall across 4th Street. , San Francisco San Francisco (săn frănsĭs`kō), city (1990 pop. 723,959), coextensive with San Francisco co., W Calif., on the tip of a peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay, which are connected by the strait known as the Golden , CA.
VMFoundry(TM) increases performance, reduces memory requirements, lowers system and development costs, and reduces time to market by enabling programmers to automatically create embedded networked devices with the Java programming language.
"By eliminating the Java Virtual Machine A Java interpreter. The Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is software that converts the Java intermediate language (bytecode) into machine language and executes it. The original JVM came from the JavaSoft division of Sun. and operating system, we can substantially reduce power and increase battery life," said Kurt Dewitt, Director of Strategic Development, Ericsson. "In addition, Websprocket allows us to transform our edge devices into intelligent nodes that interoperate seamlessly with our network management and enterprise services software".
"Websprocket is introducing a major paradigm shift A dramatic change in methodology or practice. It often refers to a major change in thinking and planning, which ultimately changes the way projects are implemented. For example, accessing applications and data from the Web instead of from local servers is a paradigm shift. See paradigm. in software development for extended enterprise," states Mark Medovich, Websprocket CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. . "VMFoundry reduces the complexities of building a post-PC Era computer by allowing any Java programmer to be a network appliance designer -- With VMFoundry, an entire embedded system is designed as a Java program."
VMFoundry processes Java applications and creates dynamic, native executables for the target machine, for the Intel StrongARM(TM) and ARM(TM) family processors.
Websprocket develops, markets, and supports, advanced software development systems that allow customers to create and manage networked embedded systems in the post-PC era. Websprocket's products enable customers to enhance product performance, reduce research and development costs and shorten product development cycles improving critical time to market. VMFoundry(TM) is based on advanced software synthesis technology that automatically builds software for embedded networked systems directly from the system application. Websprocket allows for an application written in Java to run directly on the processor without the need of an operating system and Java Virtual Machine.
