The duration of time for which each application locks each shared resource is critically important in composing multiple independently-developed applications upon a shared \"Open\" platform. In a companion paper, the authors formally defined and studied the concept of Resource Hold Time (RHT) - the largest length of time that may elapse between the instant that an application system locks a resource and the instant that it subsequently releases the resource. Focused exclusively upon systems scheduled using EDF; in this paper, they extend the discussion and results from to systems scheduled using static-priority scheduling algorithms.
