IBM® WebSphere® Real Time Version 2.0 lets you create new real-time applications using Java™
For clients building applications which depend on precise response times, WebSphere Real Time provides a development and execution environment with deterministic timing behavior that is also compatible with the Java programming language.
Users of WebSphere Real Time benefit from improved productivity and reliability by re-using their Java based assets and skills without sacrificing the deterministic properties associated with lower-level languages.
WebSphere Real Time provides a stand-alone execution environment and a development kit that supports deterministic execution behavior.
- Measured response times in milliseconds when critical application characteristics require sub-second response times.
- Provides a realistic alternative for real-time programming that supports the Java 6.0 programming model instead of lower-level languages like Ada 95, C, or C++
- Extends the Java programming model to support real-time applications with the Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ) 1.0.2
- Version 2 introduces "soft" real-time support with standard Linux® distributions: Support has been added to improve deterministic behaviors when using Linux kernels without real-time extensions.
WebSphere Real Time is intended to be used as part of an integrated solution that includes IBM hardware and Linux operating systems with real-time kernel extensions. Version 2 is also able to run on IBM hardware with standard Linux distributions to support applications with less stringent deterministic requirements.
