I'm looking for a small/lightweight Java-enabled programmable device that can be connected to the internet (either by using a standard network RJ-45 connector or by connecting via WI-FI). Also, the device will always be turned on, so a power-cable connection, rather than batteries, is probably necessary. No display needed.
My first thought was using a java enabled mobile phone. But mobile phones are not designed for long-term running, especially not on a power-cable connection.
Does anyone know of any (perhaps Squawk enabled) device that fit this description? Except Sun Spot (which seem to expensive & perhaps to much for this project)...
PS. The java app itself (very small) will periodically access and post data to a webpage. DS.
