Bollella Sun Microsystems Distinguished Engineer, Greg Bollella, explains how programming with Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ) has gotten easier and talks about the 2006 JavaOne Conference Slot Car Programming Challenge.
I recently conducted an interview with Sun's Greg Bollella that debunks some myths
about the difficulties of Real-Time Java and touts the
coming Slot Car Challenge at JavaOne, which will give
developers a chance to write some RTSJ code and see if
can guide a slot car around a track with speed and
accuracy -- it should be fun. Greg believes that "The
Slot Car Challenge at the 2006 JavaOne Conference will
prove that anyone can program with RTSJ,â€ and insists that
programming in Real-Time Java is "more like bicycle science than rocket science".
Anyone want to ride the bicycle?
