This paper describes hardware methods, a lightweight and
platform-independent scheme for linking real-time Java code
to co-processors implemented using a hardware description
language (HDL). Intended for use in embedded systems,
hardware methods have similar semantics to the native methods
used to interface Java code to legacy C/C++ software,
but are also time-predictable, facilitating accurate worstcase
execution time (WCET) analysis.
By reference to several examples, the paper demonstrates
the applicability of hardware methods and shows that they
can (1) reduce the WCET of embedded real-time Java, and
(2) improve the quality of WCET estimates in the presence
of infeasible paths.
