Abstract:

The study is intended to define the characteristics of an Ada Runtime Environment that effectively supports the development of real-time applications. The study was undertaken with the specific objective of supporting the selection of a runtime environment for the JINTACCS Automated Message Preparation System JAMPS program, but provides results useful in any real-time system acquisition program. A major goal of the JAMPS Ada software acquisition is to develop highly portable and reusable implementation that can be used in many different military systems. This goal impacts the selection and use of the runtime environment, as dependence on particular features of the runtime environment either for functionality or performance limits portability to only those systems providing the same features. This results in the concept of a minimal set of runtime environment features necessary to support JAMPS. Implementing JAMPS with dependence only on these features will allow portability within the class of systems providing those features. This report identifies such a minimal set of environment features. Keywords fault tolerant computing input output processing data storage systems.
