New Java applications and more support for Microsoft Windows CE as an embedded operating system were highlighted at the recent Embedded Systems Conference here. Support for embedded Web servers, networking support, development tools, more products for the CompactPCI platform and a new platform, PCMIP, were also unveiled.

Java developments included: Sun Microsystems' (Palo Alto, Calif.) extensions to the Java and real-time platforms, including ChorusOS, a real-time operating system optimized for telecommunications, and JavaOS for Consumers, a small footprint implementation of PersonalJava for handheld computing devices; Metrowerks' (Austin, Tex.) CodeWarrior Integrated Development Environment's support of Insignia's Embedded Virtual Machine; Espial Group's (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) Kalos Espresso, a set of Java-based user interface components, and Kalos Architect, a visual user interface builder; and Hewlett-Packard's (Palo Alto, Calif.) version 2.0 of its ChaiVM, Java Virtual Machine for embedded devices running real-time operating systems, and ChaiServer, a secure, embedded Web server.

Microsoft Windows CE innovations included: Microsoft's (Redmond, Wa.) Windows CE Platform Builder, which separates operating system design and application development; BlueWater Systems' (Edmonds, Wa.) WinDK for Windows CE, a device driver development toolkit; Bsquare's (Bellevue, Wa.) single-board CE development systems; GoAhead Software's (Redmond, Wa.) FieldUpgrader, WebAccess, and FaultManager applications based on its Embedded Management Framework; I-Logix's (Andover, Mass.) integration of its Rhapsody Visual Programming Environment with Windows CE; Motorola Semiconductor Products' (Austin, Tex.) expanded device drivers and applications for the MPC8xx family of PowerPC processors running Windows CE; VenturCom's (Cambridge, Mass.) Real-Time Extension (RTX) for CE; and Intermec's (Everett, Wash.) hand-held Data Collection PC.
