Mike has made his slides available.
Java is perhaps the most popular language since C, and an increasing number of critical applications are turning to the code for its real-time features.
At the June meeting of UUASC-OC, our own Java expert, Mike Elliott, who has spoken to us numerous times on various coding topics, returns to discuss how the Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ) is becoming widespread with the recent finalization of JSR 1.
Mike will examine for us the impact of real-time constraints on Java, and he will show us RTSJ's approach to concurrency.
Mike worked with Java and real-time programming while at Sun Microsystems, where he ported the Java Virtual Machine to various embedded microprocessor boards.
