Member Submitted

In this article, Dmitri Ilkaev provides a short overview of the limitations of the conventional Java in application to the real time requirements: thread management, class loading, garbage collection, and compilation. The paper shows how these limitations are addressed by the new Real Time Java Specifications. He also shows that Java Real Time support is growing through the standard IDE tools with new real time development capabilities as well as the first Java RT platform: IBM WebSphere Real Time.
