pp. 54-60
This paper describes the implementation of an embedded operating system explicitly designed to support the Java Virtual Machine on the National Semiconductor NS486 embedded PC. This system, the Java Nanokernel (JN), supports an Internet web server written in Java and a web camera that can be controlled from a remote web browser. JN in principle can currently run any Java program that uses the standard Java classes with the exception of AWT, the windowing toolkit. This paper briefly describes the development of the system, provides an overview of the system's kernel architecture, and presents a summary of lessons learned.
Index Terms:
