TimeSys has completed the Reference Implementation of the Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ). Accepted under the Java Community Process (JCP), it's downloadable for free from TimeSys' Web site. The implementation provides the Java virtual machine required to test an application based on Java technology against the real-time specification.
RTSJ is a major step forward for embedded Java developers who have had to contend with platform-specific real-time extensions. It will enable better portability between Java implementations while providing a standard interface to real-time services. The reference implementation takes advantage of real-time support provided by TimeSys Linux. It's available for ARM, PowerPC, x86, and Super-H platforms.
