Abstract:

A taxonomy of the coordination mechanisms for the synchronization and communication of concurrent processes is proposed. The taxonomy deals with the issues of a real-time software architecture that are application domain independent. The taxonomy will help the designer to find the appropriate coordination mechanisms for building a real-time domain specific software architecture. Features Oriented Domain Analysis methodology has been used to describe the taxonomy While Ada is the programming language that has been used here, some of the attributes and guidelines are still valid for other programming languages.
