Realtime CORBA for Realtime Java

aicas news Autumn 2005


The Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ), especially with deterministic garbage collection, provides a standard platform for realtime programming in Java, bringing Java’s “Write Once, Run Everywhere” approach to realtime developers. An RTSJ implementation can deliver realtime systems requirements, such as the ability to schedule tasks, predict the performance of those tasks, and perhaps most importantly, predict how the system will react to an overload situation or resource failure. However, realtime systems are often composed of networked processors that also must provide realtime guarantees for communication. Realtime CORBA is the first standard middleware for realtime communication among processing nodes in a realtime system.
