Get a down-to-earth definition of real-time systems and their associated concepts from two of Sun's Java real-time programming experts.
Version 2.0 of Sun's Java Real-time System (Java RTS) contains a real-time garbage collector and RTSJ-compliant programming models. Find out how it can lend predictability and deterministic behavior to financial applications.
How do you as a Java developer adapt your applications to the multi-core and parallel computing trends? A new Java framework can help you build parallel applications quickly.
Real-time Java is about more than applications that need to be fast. Find out what real-time requirements actually are and get an in-depth look at what Sun Microsystem's real-time Java can do for you.
Among the most intriguing features of the first Java SE 6 release candidate are the capabilities the new scripting and compiling APIs deliver.
A veteran Java developer takes the Java Standard Edition 6 beta for a test drive and declares it has the potential to be revolutionary to the desktop.
Find out why you should use stored procedures to build your Java persistence layer instead of embedded SQL, entity beans, or tools such as Hibernate. Then learn how to do it.
JMS provides a multitude of classes, but you need to extend or instantiate them before they're of any use. Although the complexity of this process can be daunting, applying the Facade design pattern makes JMS much simpler to use.
The JavaBean event model provides simple messaging, but it works only within a Java virtual machine (JVM). JMS allows you to send messages across a network to other JVMs, but it is quite complex. This article presents a quicker, simpler solution: transparently distributing JavaBean events over JMS.
