A Family of Real-Time Java Benchmarks
Java is becoming a viable platform for real-time computing. There are production and research real-time Java VMs, as well as applications in both military and civil sector. Technological advances and increased adoption of Real-time Java contrast significantly with the lack of benchmarks. Existing benchmarks are either synthetic micro-benchmarks, or proprietary, making it difficult to independently verify and repeat reported results. The benchmark can be configured to use different sets of real-time features and comes with a number of workloads. It can be run on standard Java virtual machines, on real-time and Safety Critical Java virtual machine, and a C version is provided to compare with native performance.
