Ada is the only ISO-standard, object-oriented, concurrent, real-time programming language. It is intended for use in large, long-lived applications where reliability and efficiency are essential, particularly real-time and embedded systems. In this book, Alan Burns and Andy Wellings give a thorough, self-contained account of how the Ada tasking model can be used to construct a wide range of concurrent and real-time systems. This is the only book that focuses on an in-depth discussion of the Ada tasking model. Following on from the authors' earlier title Concurrency in Ada, this book brings the discussion up to date to include the new Ada 2005 language and the recent advances in real-time programming techniques. It will be of value to software professionals and advanced students of programming alike: indeed every Ada programmer will find it essential reading and a primary reference work that will sit alongside the language reference manual.

Concurrent Programming in Ada

The concept of concurrency presents a real difficulty to many programmers. In this book Dr Burns introduces the topic and shows how the Ada programming language, which had as a main design specification that it should contain the features necessary for concurrent programming, deals with it. The need to produce software that models inherent parallelism is important in many applications, including embedded real time systems, process control and general purpose multi-processor system software. Although for many other applications of Ada, knowledge of the Tasking Model is not necessary the full power of the language can only really be obtained if this model is understood.

This book is an accessible introduction to the theory and practice of concurrent programming and addresses problems of the sort where several simultaneous activities compete for limited resources. Exposition is supported by realistic examples. Techniques developed include locks, semaphores, monitors, and rendez-vous. Three languages especially adapted to concurrent programming--Portal, Modula-2, Ada--are used throughout, and their relative advantages and disadvantages discussed. Contains a program for a substantial problem--the control of a digital clock and chronometer is developed in full detail in each of the three languages. Includes numerous examples.

How do real-time systems differ from normal information processing systems? How can real-time systems be analysed to ensure they satisfy their temporal constraints? Which features are needed in programming languages to implement real-time systems? This latest book from Burns and Wellings answers these and other key questions about real-time systems. It provides an in-depth analysis of the requirements for designing and implementing real-time, embedded, cyber-physical systems, and discusses how these requirements are supported by the Ada programming language. No other book on real-time (or concurrent) programming covers the same breadth of material. Topics covered in this book include: The definition of real-time, its necessary characteristics and desirable properties. Scheduling schemes, including fixed priority scheduling, Earliest Deadline First and Value-based scheduling. Analysis methods, including response-time analysis and processor demand analysis. Introduction to the Ada programming language. Programming adaptive and predictable real-time systems in Ada. Programming reliable and fault-tolerant systems in Ada. Analysing and programming for multiprocessor and multicore platforms. Mixed-criticality systems The book is aimed at Final Year and Masters students in Computer Science and related disciplines. It has also been written with the professional software engineer, and real-time systems engineer, in mind. The material presented reflects the content of courses developed over a number of years by the authors at the University of York.

This extensive and increasing use of embedded systems and their integration in everyday products mark a significant evolution in information science and technology. Nowadays embedded systems design is subject to seamless integration with the physical and electronic environment while meeting requirements like reliability, availability, robustness, power consumption, cost, and deadlines. Thus, embedded systems design raises challenging problems for research, such as security, reliable and mobile services, large-scale heterogeneous distributed systems, adaptation, component-based development, and validation and tool-based certification. This book results from the ARTIST FP5 project funded by the European Commision. By integration 28 leading European research institutions with many top researchers in the area, this book assesses and strategically advances the state of the art in embedded systems. The coherently written monograph-like book is a valuable source of reference for researchers active in the field and serves well as an introduction to scientists and professionals interested in learning about embedded systems design.
