Hello Eric & Greg,

What is Real-Time Java Programming and why we call it as Real-Time Java?

A real-time system is one that is subject to a time constraint. Meaning, something has to be done at a precise time, or within a deadline from when some real-world even occurs. Java SE is not predictable enough to build hard real-time systems with; you cannot guarantee your code can respond in time to an event to meet its deadlines. Java RTS is a separate VM implementation that works with real-time OS's such as Solaris 10, and Linux with real-time patches, to guarantee this.
