MicroEJ Development Tools Overview

MicroEJ Development Tools Overview

Using the MicroEJ SDK tool, a firmware developer will produce two versions of the MicroEJ binary, each one able to run applications created with the MicroEJ Studio tool:

  • A MicroEJ Firmware binary to be flashed on OEM devices;
  • A Virtual Device which will be used as a device simulator by application developers.

Using the MicroEJ Studio tool, an application developer will be able to:

  • Import Virtual Devices matching his target hardware in order to develop and test applications on the Simulator;
  • Deploy the application locally on an hardware device equipped with the MicroEJ Firmware;
  • Package and publish the application on a MicroEJ Forge Instance, enabling remote end users to install it on their devices. For more information about MicroEJ Forge, please consult https://www.microej.com/product/forge.
