Tao's J-Engine now ported to QNX

26 Jan 2000 Computer/Embedded Technology

Sun Microsystems' licensees, Tao Group and QNX Software Systems have announced that the J-Engine, Java Technology Edition, has been ported to the QNX 4 realtime operating system (RTOS). The J-Engine will enable users of the QNX 4 RTOS to take advantage of Tao's unique patented and patent-pending technologies for running PersonalJava & EmbeddedJava applications quickly, while remaining within a very small footprint.

"QNX users building mass consumer products can now deliver interactive Java content in ways that would be impractical without the J-Engine," said Francis Charig, Chairman and Chief Executive of Tao. "Together, the QNX RTOS and the J-Engine provide a robust, highly extensible foundation for building information appliances, including set-top boxes, web tablets, digital jukeboxes, and Internet screen phones.

"As a leading RTOS vendor, QNX recognises the need for state-of-the-art Java technologies, and the award-winning J-Engine virtual machine fits nicely into our comprehensive Java strategy," said Linda Campbell, Vice-President of Strategic Alliances at QNX. "That is why we are very excited that this technology will be available for our users."

Tao's J-Engine is claimed to be the fastest Java implementation available for the embedded or desktop environment. Additionally, the complete J-Engine system, including all of the class libraries and AWT to support pJava 1.1.6, is less than 2 MB of native code says the company.
