TimeSys Delivers the Official Reference Implementation for the Real-Time Specification for Java(TM) (RTSJ)

Jan 30, 2002, 00:00 ET from TimeSys Corporation

    PITTSBURGH, Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- TimeSys Corporation today announced
 that their completed Reference Implementation of the Real-Time Specification
 for Java (RTSJ) has been accepted under the Java Community Process(SM) (JCP)
 and is now available for free download at the TimeSys website
 (http://www.timesys.com/rtj/index.html).  Completion of the Reference
 Implementation for the RTSJ is a significant milestone in the open and
 inclusive JCP process that includes the final release of the specification.
 The Reference Implementation not only provides a proof of implementation of
 the RTSJ, but also provides the virtual machine required to test a Java
 technology-based application against the real-time specification.
     The Real-Time Specification for Java extends the capability of Java
 technology to produce the predictable behavior of embedded systems.  The
 Real-Time Specification for Java focuses on the core real-time issues of
 managing computing resources in order to satisfy application timeliness
 requirements, rather than more general topics of concurrence.  The Java
 platform's promise of "Write Once, Run Anywhere(TM)," together with the Java
 technology's popularity, offers far greater cost-savings potential in the
 real-time and embedded domains than in those of desktops and servers.  In
 addition to cost-savings, the RTSJ establishes a consensus of requirements and
 a common lexicon for real-time computing, paving the way for the future of
 real-time computing practice.
     "Sun believes that the RTSJ is the first step in the establishment of an
 open, embedded Java technology-based application development platform," said
 Dr. Greg Bollella, Sun Microsystems Senior Staff Engineer and Co-Designer of
 the Real-Time Specification for Java.  "This is a critical step in the growth
 of the embedded systems software community."
     According to Peter Haggar, Specification Lead for the RTSJ, and Senior
 Engineer for IBM Corporation, "Completion of the RTSJ and its Reference
 Implementation will trigger a new era in embedded systems language support.
 TimeSys made a major contribution to the RTSJ Expert Group in providing a
 freely available, usable Reference Implementation, with which Java developers
 can evaluate their application's conformity to the Real-Time Specification for
 Java."
     Dr. Doug Locke, Dr. Peter Dibble, and Carnegie Mellon University Professor
 & TimeSys Co-Founder, Dr. Raj Rajkumar represented Timesys in the RTSJ Expert
 Group and made significant contributions to the development of this important
 new specification.  Dr. Locke describes this event:  "The Reference
 Implementation has already made a major contribution by demonstrating the
 usability and the implementability of the Real-Time Specification for Java.
 Java technology-based applications written to the Real-Time Specification for
 Java will be uniquely able to provide both predictable performance and
 unprecedented portability across multiple RTSJ-compliant Java Virtual Machines
 because of the standard's carefully crafted resource management mechanisms.
 This Reference Implementation will be extremely useful for designers looking
 to benefit from using Java in embedded application development."
 
     About TimeSys
     TimeSys is a pioneer and leader in Embedded Linux and Java development
 technologies.  Its products allow design engineers to leverage the power,
 flexibility and reliability of a new class of development tools for advanced
 embedded systems for a variety of markets and applications, covering the
 complete performance range from non-real-time to deterministic hard real-time,
 using both open-source and proprietary technologies.  TimeSys is considered
 the top choice by systems architects for developing more robust, less
 expensive, single API Linux solutions for embedded systems.  TimeSys was the
 first to create a reservation technology that guarantees system response, even
 in overloaded systems.  TimeSys solutions offer completely predictable and
 fast response time performance.  For more information about TimeSys, please
