English abstract:
Recent technologies such as the Real-Time Specification
for Java promise to bring Java´s advantages to real-time
systems. While these technologies have made Java more
predictable, they lack a crucial element: support for determining
the worst-case execution time (WCET). Without
knowledge of WCET, the correct temporal behavior of a
Java program cannot be guaranteed. Although considerable
research has been applied to the theory of WCET analysis,
implementations are much less common, particularly
for Java.
Recognizing this deficiency, we have created an opensource,
extensible tool that supports WCET analysis of Java
programs. Designed for flexibility, it is built around a plugin
model that allows features to be incorporated as needed.
Users can plug in various processor models, loop bound
detectors, and WCET analysis algorithms without having
to understand or alter the tool´s internals.
