Ada* is unquestionably one of the most significant programming languages to emerge in the last decade. The manner of its inception and support by the US Department of Defense (DoD) ensures that it will be used extensively for the indefinite future in programming large and complex systems. The growing availability of compilers means that many organisations are already committed to using the language for sizable and significant applications. As a perhaps inevitable result of its design goals, Ada is a "large" language. It has Pascal-like control and type constructs; a mechanism for exception handling; a package structure for information hiding, decomposition and separate compilation; facilities for low-level programming; and a tasking model of concurrency. It is perhaps this last area that has generated most debate, criticism and disagreement. The purpose of this book is to review the tasking model in the light of the extensive analysis and comment which has appeared in the literature. The review is necessarily wide-ranging, including discussion of - Ada as a general purpose concurrent programming language, - Ada as a language for embedded and distributed systems, - implementation issues, with particular reference to distributed systems, - formal semantics, specification and verification, - proposed language modifications. By consolidating this discussion within the confines of a single review, potential users of the tasking facility are enabled to familiarise themselves with all the factors which may impinge upon the performance, reliability and correctness of their software. The book also provides a focus for any debate on modifications to the Ada language, or developments from it

An architectural framework for Timely And Reliable Distributed Information Systems (TARDIS) : description and case study by Alan Burns( Book )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "This report contains two papers on TARDIS, an architectural framework for timely and reliable distributed information systems. The first paper gives a detailed description of TARDIS, and also reviews various approaches to satisfying the non-functional requirements of a system. The second paper is a case study in the use of TARDIS, containing a detailed worked example. Although the first paper can be read in isolation, the ideas are given concrete expression in the case study."

A disciplined approach to real-time systems design by Colin J Fidge( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "Traditional software development techniques have been found wanting when applied to real-time systems development. Real-time concerns are typically introduced on an ad hoc basis, often very late in the development process when the overall design is difficult to change. Abstraction, i.e., hiding implementation-level detail from top-level designers, has long been a software engineering mainstay, but often proves to be inappropriate for real-time work. In real-time systems development the target execution environment constrains the feasible designs and satisfiable real-time goals, but it would be impractical to burden the designer with such low-level information. Despite these problems software developers naturally wish to continue using their own development languages and techniques, rather than learning an entirely new methodology for real- time software. In this article we describe the rôle of TARDIS (Timely and Reliable Distributed Information Systems) in the architectural design phase of a real-time system [1,2]. TARDIS ensures that real-time issues are introduced into the design process as early as possible. It avoids overwhelming the designer with detail by introducing only essential information, and then only when and where it may have an impact on the design. TARDIS is a generic framework -- it is not dependent on any particular languages or development techniques -- an is unintrusively overlaid onto an existing environment to produce a locally-customised methodology for real-time systems development."
