Embedding sequence layer with LSTM

I am trying char modelling in LSTM s and referring to the dl4j example in github -

I would like to know if it is desirable to provide input to an embedding sequence layer , instead of directly providing to LSTM … , if possible how to provide the time dimension in the embedding ? (any example for the same is appreciated )

Check input shape description. It might contain data you’re looking for depend on a layer type.
