About this book
Research on real-time Java technology has been prolific over the past decade, leading to a large number of corresponding hardware and software solutions, and frameworks for distributed and embedded real-time Java systems. This book is aimed primarily at researchers in real-time embedded systems, particularly those who wish to understand the current state of the art in using Java in this domain. Much of the work in real-time distributed, embedded and real-time Java has focused on the Real-time Specification for Java (RTSJ) as the underlying base technology, and consequently many of the Chapters in this book address issues with, or solve problems using, this framework.
- Describes innovative techniques in: scheduling, memory management, quality of service and communication systems supporting real-time Java applications;
- Includes coverage of multiprocessor embedded systems and parallel programming;
- Discusses state-of-the-art resource management for embedded systems, including Java’s real-time garbage collection and parallel collectors;
- Considers hardware support for the execution of Java programs including how programs can interact with functional accelerators;
- Includes coverage of Safety Critical Java for development of safety critical embedded systems.
