Java Technology is expanding everywhere

In the space to show my passion for JAVA, I have listed some of the areas [I said some of the areas] where JAVA has been deployed. Surpasses 1.5 billion devices worldwide 250 Million Mobile Phones, 650 Million Desktops, 500 Million SIM and Smart Cards, and a Hundred Million Other Locations.

Java technology is everywhere - over 1.5 billion worldwide footprints and growing 25% since June of 2002. In the mobile data services market, compelling new content has brought 2.5 and 3G networks to life worldwide, operators have standardized on Java technologies in handsets to power mobile data services and GSM SIM Cards to authenticate network access and SIM-based applications. Java technology-based smart cards are also being adopted by many corporations and governments for identity solutions. In the traditional computing market, the growth of alternative desktops and the user requirements for Java technology have led to many new desktop licensing agreements, while the expansion of Java Web services is driving the adoption of the Java platform from server infrastructure to the edge of the network.

Java Technology and the Mission to Mars [download Java]

NASA scientists have used Java for this mission is all on the ground side right now. They have created this collaborative command and control system called Maestro, which does this combination of data visualization, collaboration, command and control. It lets them look at images and create 3-D reconstructions of terrain. It allows various experimenters to look at the scenes and topography, browse the image databases and take part in all the participation they need to do. And to do it in a remote, distributed and collaborative kind of way - so they could actually have scientists at institutions all over the world who are not only looking at the data, but also collaboratively deciding on the way the mission should proceed.


Java in BMW : Change the Oil, Upgrade the Sofware [download Java]

Deep under the hood of BMW's iDrive system is a Java engine that allows the car's programming to be continually kept up to date. It's a classic case of German engineering meeting Silicon Valley ingenuity. Sun Microsystems (SUNW ), providing computer technology to new BMWs. Moreover, Sun's technology could ultimately be far more important than a little iPod to the automotive industry, allowing carmakers to change the way they design internal computer systems.

Several new lines of BMWs are shipping with built-in software called iDrive. Found in BMW's 7 Series, 6 Series, and 5 Series cars, iDrive controls a car's audio system, navigation, and things like the cabin's temperature. The stylish display panel allows drivers to manipulate all those systems from a single knob, rather than a dashboard full of buttons.


Java Technology at Play [download Java]

Java platform is also making increasing appearances in game platforms. For instance, games built on Java technology are being running on the Sega Dreamcast. Activision's "Vampire: The Masquerade" is scripted entirely using the Java programming language. This scripting in the Java programming language allows developers to rapidly redefine what the environment looks like and how it is built. Everything about the game is completely customizable if you program in the Java language."

Java Smart Card technology [download Java]

Java Card technology adapts the Java platform for use on smart cards and other devices whose environments are highly specialized, and whose memory and processing constraints are typically more severe than those of J2ME devices. Smart cards are very useful in the areas of personal security. They can be used to add authentication and secure access to information systems that require a high level of security. Information stored in smart cards is portable. With Java Card technology you can carry around valuable and sensitive personal information such as your medical history, credit card numbers, or electronic cash balances in a medium that is compact, yet very secure.

Java-Powered Smart Button [download Java]

Java Card technology also exists in form factors other than smart cards, such as smart buttons and USB tokens. These can be used much as smart cards are, to authenticate users or carry sensitive information for example. Smart buttons include a battery and are contact-based, while USB tokens can be plugged directly into the USB port of a PC with no need for a contact or contactless reader. Both provide the same programming capabilities as smart cards and have tamper-resistance properties.


Java and Speech Recognition [download Java]

The Java Speech API (JSAPI) provides a simple yet powerful interface into speech systems -- including speech recognition and speech synthesis. The Java Speech API can also be used for dictation systems, which offer, in essence, a superset of command-and-control functionality. Rather than looking for specific words/commands, such a system will process every word that is spoken, for use in word processors and web browsers.

Project Looking Glass : revolution in desktop [download Java]

Project Looking Glass, these Java-based technology will bring 3D windowing capabilities to the desktop to offer a far richer user experience for work and play. But, it's not only about looks, it's about creating an engaging user experience, one that can make communications and collaboration even easier. In the prototype, windows displaying applications are no longer stacked upon each other with flat icons and buttons to represent them; they are viewed in a 3D environment and manipulated as 3D objects. It moves beyond the boundaries of old environments to revolutionize the use of the desktop. Project Looking Glass is being created to work with the Solaris and Linux desktop environments using Java technology. When completed, it will work alongside applications designed for a 2D window system, without modifications.

Java Technology in TV [download Java]

Java TV software is an open, interoperable technology for next-generation TV content and services and is an integral part of emerging worldwide TV standards including OpenCable, Digital Video Broadcasting-Multimedia Home Platform, and Digital Television Industrial Alliance. By placing these services and functions on TV set-top boxes, services really are available to you right when we want them. From our couch we can order CDs, download MP3 audio for the home sound systems, check news and stocks, and even play interactive games with your neighbors, or practice being an armchair quarterback with our friends across the country while watching football."

Java for Bioinformatics [download Java]

Java-based bioinformatics development is a new but rapidly growing industry. Java is facilitating academia's transfer from script-based development to heavy-duty applications development; these applications integrate large amounts of data and a variety of analysis algorithms to target specific niches of genomics research. Java is also changing the nature of how bioinformaticians and biologists work. With specialized APIs like JavaHelp, Java3D, and Web Services, developers can rapidly integrate tutorials, deliver more types of data, and provide novel views. With bioinformatics-driven APIs like EnsEMBL-Java and Biojava, Java developers can quickly access complex biological objects and integrate them into their applications. WebMol analyzer uses Java3D to allow researchers to visualize and manipulate complex protein structures. It is a good example of how Java applets can be used to deliver novel information.

Java Technology enabled e-Gas Pumps [download Java]

The Connected Gas Pump Perhaps the most unusual and thought-provoking demonstration is a connected "eGas pump" that runs Java Embedded Server technology, enabling the pump to communicate with and run software between registers, back-end accounting systems, and advertising and information consoles on the pump. And the pump can communicate with a prototype automobile: Using wireless transmission, the pump displays the diagnostic status of the car, and offers to drivers additional service upgrades such as food, entertainment, and trip planning. Gas and oil company station owners can access and reconcile transactions and create updates remotely throughout the day. Several such eGas stations are being tested in the United States and Europe.

Java Technology Powered Robots [download Java]

For all those who might assume that robotics is not something the average Java programmer can readily explore, you have to experience the LEGO Mindstorms Robotics Invention System. LEGO came up with the Mindstorms system about three years ago. It was developed in conjunction with MIT. At the heart of the system is the programmable RCX "brick," a small computer contained within a yellow LEGO brick. The brick consists of a Hitachi 8-bit processor (16 MHz), 16 Kb of ROM, 32 Kb of RAM, 3 sensor inputs, 3 motor outputs, a 5-character LCD display, and an infrared serial data communications port. The brick is a small and extremely resource-constrained computing device -- particularly by today's desktop standards of GHz processors and hundreds of Mb of memory. The three outputs of the brick can be connected to motors and other devices, and the three inputs can be connected to such varied sensor devices as light, touch, rotation, and even heat. The system can process over 1000 commands a second, and features a fully multitasking operating system (allowing up to ten simultaneous tasks). The brick was initially designed by LEGO to be programmed via a PC-based system that allows the visual assembly of on-screen functional components. This component-driven system then generates a completed program that can be downloaded into the brick.

But what opened the brick up to whole new vistas of innovation and functionality was the development of the open source leJOS environment. The creators of leJOS have managed to squeeze an actual Java Runtime Environment (including multi-threading) into 14 KB on the brick. But leJOS is obviously not a complete implementation of the Java platform. With leJOS, Java developers now have an inexpensive (yet multi-threaded) robotics platform available to them. In order to accommodate future versions of the brick, the system was designed to allow for the easy loading of new LEGO firmware.
