The Java Target for XPad will feature:
Without knowledge of Java your applications will run anywhere a JVM is available.
You can import and use any of the hundreds of Java-class available today
The XPad models are compiled into Java bytecode
Functional simulator allowing you to visually step through your design
Distributed simulation allows you to test the target-Java platform
Tested on Dallas Semiconductor TINI embedded system.
A compiler, which generates Java class-files can run on nearly any target platform! JVMs exist for many platforms, especially if they are used to access the internet, where the use of Java is widely spread. Furthermore thousands of classes have been written in Java, all of which you can import into your XPad projects, without knowing anything about the Java-language itself.
Furthermore, XPad's Java-target has been designed to generate very small class-files, using a minimum of resources and depending on a minimum of existing Java-packages. As a result, generated applications are specifically suited to be executed on smaller Java platforms, the number of which is increasing all the time. I.e. the Dallas Semiconductor Tini/iButton platforms, the aJile Java-processor, which runs JVM-bytecodes natively, etc.
NOTE: this target will be available SOON!
