Abstract:

This paper addresses two distinct needs of real-time applications distribution and hard real-time scheduling mechanisms. Specifically, this paper rejects both the notion of modifying the Ada language to achieve needed real- time solutions and the current fad of extensively modifying the Ada compiler andor vendor-supplied runtime system. Instead, this paper defines the functionality of a Distributed Ada Real-Time Kernel hereafter called the Kernel. The goal of the Kernel is to support effectively the execution of distributed, real-time Ada applications in an embedded computer environment by returning control to the user, where it belongs.
