HIJA Proposal for Safety Critical Java

This document contains the current HIJA proposal for safety critical Java. It should not be seen as a single proposal; rather it is a series of proposals for various aspects of a safety critical java standard. It is organized along similar lines as the Real-Time Specification for Java. The appendix contains some optional standard features.

Proposal Overview

The Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ) was designed to address the general needs of adapting Java for use in realtime applications. As Java has matured, it was become increasingly desirable to use Java in ever more critical applications. However,traditional safety critical application require an exceedingly rigorous validation and certification process. Therefore a tighter and smaller Java standard is needed to support these applications through the validation and certification process.
