BEA, of San Jose, Calif., claims WLRT Core Edition 1.1 is the industrys only Java-based runtime that delivers 30-millisecond maximum response times.
The technology is targeted at applications for the financial services, government, military/aerospace, gaming and manufacturing sectors, the company said.
WLRT Core Edition 1.1 provides customers with fast, predictable response times that their real-time applications demand; allows customers with soft real-time needs to reap the benefits of a standard Java-based infrastructure, including higher developer productivity, fewer defects and adherence to standards; and enables companies to stop writing and maintaining their own custom infrastructure code and instead focus on the business functionality of their real-time applications, BEA officials said.
Moreover, WLRT enables real-time application developers to use Java in situations that typically call for C or C++, BEA officials said. And the Java elements are more readily integrated into SOA (service-oriented architecture), the company said.
In addition to the core technology, WLRT includes BEA JRockit 5.0 R26, which features deterministic garbage collection; BEA JRockit Runtime Analyzer, an on-demand "flight recorder" that produces detailed recordings to analyze application latency; and BEA WebLogic Express Basic Edition, a Java Servlet engine designed to get developers up and running on BEA WebLogic quickly and inexpensively, the company said.
