Abstract

Despite Java's initial promise of providing a reliable and cost-effective platform-independent environment, the language appears to be unfavourable in the area of high-integrity systems and real-time systems. To encourage the use of Java in the development of distributed high-integrity real-time systems, the language environment must provide not only a well-defined specification or subset, but also a complete environment with appropriate analysis tools. We propose an extensible distributed high-integrity real-time Java environment, called XRTJ, that supports three attributes, i.e., predictable programming model, dependable static analysis environment, and reliable distributed run-time environment. The goal of this paper is to present an overview of our on-going project and report on its current status. We also raise some important issues in the area of distributed high-integrity systems, and present how we can deal with them by defining two distributed run-time models where safe and timely operations will be supported.
