Using Java in Safety-Critical Applications

Whitepaper by Wolf-Dieter Heker, Rainer Koellner

Abstract

This document provides an analysis of the concerns with using Java, in particular real-time Java, in safety-critical applications. The focus is on hard real-time applications subject to certification based on ISO 26262. Both safety and timeliness are considered.

As ISO 26262-6:2011 is not specific on activities regarding object-oriented (OO) languages, this document refers to guidance provided for real-time applications in avionics, which have similar certification requirements. The avionics standard RTCA/DO-178C has an entire supplement on object-oriented technology and related techniques called RTCA/DO-332. DO- 332 is used in this document to supplement the lack of detail for object-oriented technology in ISO 26262.

Furthermore, this document outlines a road map of necessary activities for using the aicas JamaicaVM implementation of real-time Java in a safety-critical environment.
