Concurrent Object-Oriented Real-Time Systems Research
MetadataShow full item record
This research investigates building real-time systems with a concurrent object oriented programming language. There are close parallels between the characteristics of concurrent object oriented languages and real-time systems. The language's underlying model of concurrency reflects the distributed and concurrent nature of real-time systems while the language's object orientation and the reusability properties of class inheritance address the embedded and evolutionary aspects of real-time systems. Automatic reclamation of concurrent objects frees programmers from the error-prone task of explicit resource management of dynamically created objects. Reclamation of concurrent objects provides an integrated management of both processing and memory resources.
