Java runtime solutions company Azul Systems has announced that Zulu Embedded is now available to download on the Wind River Marketplace.

Zulu Embedded?

Zulu Embedded is Azul’s open source Java Virtual Machine (JVM) based on OpenJDK developed for manufacturers in the embedded, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) markets,

Wind River is a subsidiary company of Intel providing embedded system software which comprises run-time software, industry-specific software solutions, simulation technology, development tools and middleware.

Azul says it has tested and validated Zulu Embedded for interoperability with Wind River Linux, an operating system that combines embedded functionality with the flexibility and freedom of open source software.

NOTE: Zulu Embedded is 100% open source and is based on OpenJDK, the Java Community project where Java is developed and evolved.

According to Azul, Zulu Embedded allows developers to utilise a Java SE standards compliant package to suit their specific support and configuration needs.

Each Zulu Embedded build is verified by Azul using the Java Community Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK) and incorporates the latest OpenJDK bug fixes and security patches.

Scott Sellers, president and CEO of Azul Systems is on the record with the following, “Zulu Embedded has been deployed in millions of devices worldwide, as its open source nature and compliance with Java SE standards offers a compelling economic and technical proposition for a wide range of high volume embedded and IoT products. We are pleased to now offer Zulu Embedded on the Wind River Marketplace, enabling many more developers targeting embedded and IoT devices to have access to a best-in-class open source Java development kit and runtime.”
