EnBW, one of Europe’s leading integrated energy companies, and MicroDoc sign a strategic frame agreement for cooperation in software projects until 2020.
MicroDoc is a software licensor for Java technology and has been an engineering service provider for the highly innovative EnergyBASE project of EnBW since 2015. Our engineers support the development of complex software infrastructure for management of an energy mix comprised of solar power, battery storage and fixed network power grids. This technology portfolio will be of significant importance in the context of the fast growing electro mobility market. MicroDoc brings in relevant know-how from the energy sector, from smart home/home automation and especially from the automotive industry.
Everything On Graal VM
We illustrate how to build and debug the native image of a Java application, produced by MicroDoc GraalVM Embedded, and running on a remote embedded device. The debugging experience is illustrated inside the VSCode IDE. The embedded device runs Linux on an ARMv8-A processor (running in AArch64 mode), like a RaspberryPi 4 or 5.
For devices that are not powerful enough to run a full feature browser or Android system, MicroDoc is developing a user interface framework directly integrated with the Graal virtual machine. Why? Because the number of small devices is increasing dramatically, and although they may be small and low powered they still deserve an up-to-date user interface.
Would it be fair to say that the GraalVM is a step closer to the holy grail of polyglot programming? Yes, according to the virtual machine experts from MicroDoc. Here’s an overview of what the GraalVM can do for software developers.
