ARM, Oracle Strike Multi-Year Deal to Inject Java SE Support Into ARMv8 64-bit Platforms

ARM this week announced that it's inked a multi-year contract with Oracle to further optimize the existing Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE) for ARM 32-bit platforms and also to add Java SE support for ARMv8 64-bit platforms. The deal will benefit enterprise and embedded markets, including server and network infrastructures, as well as emerging machine-to-machine (M2M) sectors like industrial control, factory automation, and single-board computers.

"The long-standing relationship between ARM and Oracle has enabled our mutual technologies to be deployed across a broad spectrum of products and applications," commented Henrik Stahl, vice president, Java Product Management, Oracle. "By working closely with ARM to enhance the JVM, adding support for 64-bit ARM technology and optimizing other aspects of the Java SE product for the ARM architecture, enterprise and embedded customers can reap the benefits of high-performance, energy-efficient platforms based on ARM technology."

Oracle's Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is commonly found in enterprise servers and embedded systems and helps to improve performance of multi-core ARM systems. Through this deal, performance will improve even further, while also leading to improved boot-up performance, power savings, and library optimization, the firms said.
