Much of the research on scheduling schemes is prevented from being used in practice by the lack of implementation sthat provide the necessary abstractions. An example of this lack of provision is the support of execution-time servers, these important building blocks are not generally available to the system developer. In this paper, we show how new Ada 2005 mechanisms can be used to construct various execution-time servers. We also outline the different server types that could form part of a library of real-time utilities for Ada.
