Sun announced the intent to develop real-time extensions for the
Java platform. The creation of this specification will take
place in collaboration with members of the industry interested in
standard real-time functionality for the Java platform. Sun's
implementation of the real-time specification for the Java
platform is intended to empower developers with the technology
and tools to write mission critical, real-time applications,
entirely in the Java programming language.
Sun expects to utilize the requirements outlined by the working
group guided by the National Institute for Standards and
Technology (NIST) of which Sun is a participant. The group,
formed of companies and institutions in the embedded software
market, has come together to deliver guidelines for a ubiquitous
Java technology standard for real-time computing. The group will
provide Sun with the output of their efforts so that the
technology guidelines can be used in the creation of a Java
platform standard extension for real-time computing.
