English abstract:
An important part of implementing device drivers is to
control the interrupt facilities of the hardware platform and
to program interrupt handlers. Current methods for handling
interrupts in Java use a server thread waiting for the VM to
signal an interrupt occurrence. It means that the interrupt
is handled at a later time, which has some disadvantages.
We present constructs that allow interrupts to be handled directly
and not at a later point decided by a scheduler. A
desirable feature of our approach is that we do not require
a native middelware layer but can handle interrupts entirely
with Java code. We have implemented our approach using
an interpreter and a Java processor, and give an example
demonstrating its use.
