Over 90 percent of all microprocessors  are now used for real-time and  
embedded applications, and the  behavior of many of these applications  
is  constrained   by  the  physical  world.   Higher-level programming  
languages and middleware    are needed to  robustly and   productively  
design, implement, compose, integrate, validate, and enforce real-time  
constraints  along   with  conventional  functional   requirements and  
reusable components.  
Designing real-time and embedded systems that implement their required  
capabilities, are dependable  and predictable, and are parsimonious in  
their use  of limited computing  resources is  hard; building  them on  
time and   within  budget is  even  harder.   Moreover, due  to global  
competition for marketshare and  engineering talent, companies are now  
also faced with the problem  of developing and delivering new products  
in short time frames. It is therefore essential that the production of  
real-time embedded systems can take advantage of languages, tools, and  
methods that enable higher software productivity.  
Ideally, developers  should use a  programming languages  that shields  
them from many accidental  complexities,  such as type errors,  memory  
management, and steep learning curves.  The Java programming  language  
has  become an attractive  choice because of its safety, productivity,  
its relatively   low maintenance costs,  and the  availability of well  
trained developers.  
Although  its  good   software  engineering  characteristics, Java  is  
unsuitable for developing real-time  embedded  systems, mainly due  to  
under-specification of thread  scheduling and the presence of  garbage  
collection. Recently, to address these problems, a number of extension  
to Java   have been proposed,  the two  most representative  being the  
Experts  Group Real-Time  Specification   (RTSJ)  for  Java  and   the  
J-Consortium Real-Time  Core Extension (RTCore).   The intent of these  
specifications is   the   development of  real-time   applications  by  
providing several additions such  as extending the Java memory  model,  
providing stronger semantics in thread scheduling, and so on.  
There is an  increasingly growing interest  in Real-Time Java  in both  
the research community and the industry, because of its challenges and  
its potential impact on    the development of embedded   and real-time  
applications.  Building on the success of the previous edition of this  
workshop, our goal is to gather researchers working on  real-time  and  
embedded  Java  to identify the challenging problem that still need to  
be properly solved in order to assure the  success of the of Real-Time  
Java as  a  technology, and to report results and experience gained by  
Submission Requirements  
Participants are  expected to submit a position  paper  or an extended  
abstract  of  at most  10 pages by  the submission deadline.  Accepted
