Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) sponsored the Requirements Group for Real-time Extensions to the Java Platform. The Requirements Group includes representatives from companies and organizations whose expertise spans the computing industry and academia. Industry participants include desktop, server, and enterprise systems providers, embedded systems providers, device manufacturers, and real-time operating system vendors. The Requirements Group met during a six-month period in a series of open workshops. Additionally, the Requirements Group continued discussions on the rt-java [at] raleigh.ibm.com (rt-java[at]raleigh[dot]ibm[dot]com) mailing list. The goal of the Group was to develop cross-disciplinary requirements for real-time functionality that is expected to be needed by real-time applications written in the Java programming language and executing on various platforms. This document is the result of the Requirements Group's efforts.
