The Definitive Guide to Java RTS for Developers and Architects
- For Java developers and architects moving to real-time, and real-time developers moving to JavaWalks through start-to-finish case study applications, identifying their constraints and discussing the APIs and design patterns used to address themWritten by the former leader of the real-time Java standards process and one of Wall Street's top real-time developers
Sun Microsystems' Java Real-Time System (Java RTS) is proving itself in numerous, wide-ranging environments, including finance, control systems, manufacturing, and defense. Java RTS and the RTSJ standard (JSR-001) eliminate the need for complicated, specialized, real-time languages and operating environments, saving money by leveraging Java's exceptional productivity and familiarity.
InReal-Time Java(tm) Programming,two of Sun's top real-time programming experts present the deep knowledge and realistic code examples that developers need to succeed with Java RTS and its APIs. As they do so, the authors also illuminate the foundations of real-time programming in any RTSJ-compatible environment.
Key topics include
- Real-time principles and concepts, and the unique requirements of real-time application design and developmentHow Java has been adapted to real-time environmentsA complete chapter on garbage collection concepts and Java SE collectorsUsing the Java RTS APIs to solve actual real-time system problems as efficiently as possibleUtilizing today's leading Java RTS development and debugging toolsUnderstanding real-time garbage collection, threads, scheduling, and dispatchingProgramming new RTSJ memory modelsDealing with asynchronous event handling and asynchronous transfer of control
About the Author
Eric J. Bruno, systems engineer at Sun Microsystems, specializes in Java RTS in the financial community. He is contributing editor for Dr. Dobb’s Journal, and writes its online Java blog. Prior to Sun, Eric worked at Reuters where he developed real-time trading systems, order-entry and routing systems, as well as real-time news and quotes feeds, in both Java and C++.
Greg Bollella, Ph.D., distinguished engineer at Sun Microsystems, leads R&D for real-time Java. He was specifi cation lead for JSR-001, the Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ), and led the Real-Time for Java Expert Group under the Java Community Process. He has written multiple books, articles, and professional papers about real-time computing. He has a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he wrote a dissertation on real-time scheduling theory and real-time systems implementation.
