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.

This book starts very intriguing: An elavator is a real time system. A web server is not.
Real Time in not 'run as fast as you can' like the Gingerbread says. It is all about reliable timing.
This book explain in thorough (very thorough) detail what's wrong with standard java and what happens when RTSJ comes to the rescue.
You will learn how the garbage collector, a bad guy of standard java, is tamed, the JIT compiler, another nasty mug, is rendered harmless and how you can instruct threads to perform exactly what you want and not let them dawdle.
You will find:
long deep theoretical explanations of how the garbage collertors are (or could be) implemented and
long deep theoretical and practical explanations of how you can avoid the JIT compiler and
long deep theoretical and practical explanations of how you can avoid the dynamic classloading and
long deep explanations of how to set up a real time environment: the JVM itself need a real time operating system (windows is obviously excluded)
Until you will see what means to write a program with RTSJ: in same ways is like coming back to C and sit right on the memory...
The examples in the book quite gently introduce you to the core concepts and the final application wraps up all the tecniques useful in RTSJ described in the book.
It's an interesting book if you want to learn the internals of java or if you need to evaluate real time java for your next project.
