Oracle have announced an update to Java SE for embedded devices that brings the product into line with the latest Java SE 6 release. This update synchronises the Java Runtime Environments for Linux on ARM, PowerPC and x86 with Java SE 6 update 21 for desktop and servers. This means that developers can deploy the same version of Java SE as they use on their desktop systems. The PowerPC e500v2 platform is now supported, alongside Multi-core support for ARM and PowerPC processors.
