Ada 2005 has introduced a version of Baker's Stack Resource Protocol called the Preemption Level Control Protocol in order to support EDF scheduling. Baker's protocol is, however, a general protocol that can be used with a range of scheduling algorithms, for example any static job-level algorithm such as static values or a modified least laxity algorithm. This paper investigates the changes that would be needed to Ada 2005 to allow it to support user-defined scheduling, where the user can implement any scheduling approach that is compatible with Baker's algorithm.
