"Being able to address more than 60% of the worldwide software developer community is a formidable boost of innovative creativity that we are proud to share with our customers," said Fred Rivard, MicroEJ’s CEO, in a statement.
The MicroEJ roadmap includes other popular languages, such as Kotlin and Python, and the company says to expect support for them, soon.
The list of features MICROEJ Kifaru introduces to smart device manufacturers includes:
- Safe software container: The new framework targets the MicroEJ software container, making it possible for developers to write their applications in multiple languages. Also, all multi-language components are securely run and managed by the VEE.
- Reliability: The MicroEJ provides application sandboxing, which means that software applications stay isolated from each other. Device robustness is guaranteed at execution, the company says, thanks to code validation and real-time execution checking for reliable embedded and IoT devices.
According to the company, more than 120+ companies around the world currently use MicroEJ to design electronic product applications in a large variety of industries, including smart home, wearables, healthcare, industrial automation, retail, telecommunications, smart city, building automation, and transportation, among others.
