Real-Time and Event-Based Systems Volume 47, Number 2, 2008 Click to enlarge
SJ 47-2
Due to the growing demands for responsiveness in business processes, command-and-control systems, and embedded systems, the deployment rate of responsive systems is increasing. This issue of the Journal is dedicated to responsive systems, a class of systems that includes real-time and event-based systems. An introductory paper, authored by the issue coordinators, is followed by ten papers that cover platforms, middleware, and development support for responsive systems.
