Ada is the only ISO standard object oriented concurrent real-time programming language. It is intended for use in large, long-lived applications where reliability and efficiency are essential. It is particularly relevant for real-time and embedded systems. Alan Burns and Andy Wellings provide here a a thorough and self-contained account of how the Ada tasking model can be used to construct a wide variety of concurrent and real-time systems. This is the only book that focuses on an in-depth discussion of the Ada tasking model. In this new edition, the discussion is brought up-to-date to include both the new Ada 2005 language and the recent advances in real-time programming techniques. It…
