Realtime Java

Today IBM announced the availability of our J9 based realtime Java VM.

The product is called Websphere Realtime and is a full Java 5 runtime which also contains a full implmentation of RTSJ JSR1 in addition to a true, realtime garbage collector based on IBM research's Metronome technology.

The technology is pretty impressive (ms level max pause with guaranteed utilization) and goes along way in making Java useable in complex time critical applications.

Being a full J2SE means it won't fit on my mindstorms robot yet, I would have to do a J2ME version (in my copious spare time) .
