Nedap evaluated Oracle Java SE Embedded, IBM J9 and OpenJDK. The company chose Oracle Java SE Embedded for its superior development environment, lower license costs, and intuitive tools that would enable it to deploy applications with greater ease and flexibility. Nedap chose Oracle Java SE Embedded instead of a lower cost open source Java virtual machine to ensure lifetime support for applications that are critical to the security of its customers’ businesses.
“Oracle Java SE Embedded offered unrivalled stability, industry-leading robustness, highest performance, and fastest user response times for our security solutions,” said Albert Dercksen, research and development director, Nedap N.V. “With Oracle, we know we will have the scalability to continue meeting our customers’ requirements for advanced, holistic solutions in five years’ time.”
Nedap was looking for guidance to select the right Java virtual machine for its environment. Oracle’s presales team evaluated Nedap’s technical requirements and advised the company in making the best choice for its solution. Nedap’s development team installed the Oracle Java SE Embedded virtual machine and immediately tested the company’s main system requirements, including performance, robustness, and stability. Nedap’s first reaction was very positive and shortly afterward it decided to build its complete environment with Oracle Java SE Embedded.
