Conference Paper


Download full-text (Open Access)

Abstract


  • In this paper, we examine the advantage of writing real-time applications and operating systems in type-safe languages, such as Java. In this context, we look at the issues of using Java in real-time systems and the development tools available on Macintosh computers. Finally, we explore the potential of the Sun SPOT system: a credit-card sized Java computer with input/output, and a wireless network, that runs the Squawk JVM. It is planned to be released in Australia in the third quarter of 2007.
