Version 2.0 of the RTS Specification (JSR 1.0) was announced in one of the Keynotes at JavaOne 2007. In Podcast #124, The Java Posse interview Greg Bollella and Dave Hofert of the Java RTS team. The interview gives a nice overview of what real-time means in the Java context. I’m now looking forward to the release of the recorded lectures. (The slides are already available.) You have to join the Sun Developer Network to access these, but registration is free.
While I’m here, let me recommend that every who’s interested in Java should tune in to the Java Posse podcast!
