Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Microsoft .NET Framework is a comparatively new technology that has already gained considerable momentum. Its user base and popularity is expanding. In addition, it offers a number of important traits, such as code portability and cross-language development. It is these features that have attracted our attention into investigating the possibility of using .NET for architecture-neutral real-time systems. As a result, this paper tries to set the groundwork for implementing a real-time version of the Microsoft .NET Framework by specifying a set of requirements.
