Elias- Have you looked in tinyos-2.x-contrib? This is a CVS repository
maintained in parallel with the regular TiynOS 2 tree. There's a lot of
stuff in there.
Ben- I'd start with a moderately complex TinyOS application like MViz or
MultihopOsciloscope. Both are in tinyos-2.x/apps. Then it should be easy
to come up with some scenarios that stress different aspects of a Java
implementation. For example:
- single node vs. largish grid network
- bare simualation vs. lots of monitors, watches, etc.
