The Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ) extends Java's support for platform-independence into the realms of real-time systems. It supports an environment that facilitates on-line feasibility analysis. However, an RTSJ program is normally run on an execution platform that might be shared with other (possibly non Java) applications. This paper explores how the notion of service contracts can be used to enhance the platform-independence of RTSJ applications. It also considers the role of real-time application components within an RTSJ environment.
