DDC-I Offers WAMI Support for Scorpion Real-Time Java Eclipse Tool Set

DDC-I, a leading supplier of development tools for safety-critical applications, announced WAMI (Wizard for Advanced Mixed-Language Integration) support for its Scorpion real-time Java development environment. The new wizard simplifies mixed-language development and legacy migration by enabling real-time Java applications to utilize existing C, Embedded C++, and Ada code.

“Scorpion has the unique ability to match native Java method calls directly to existing code in C or Ada,” said Bob Morris, president and CEO of DDC-I. “WAMI makes mixed-language development easier then ever, enabling Java developers to utilize existing C, Embedded C++, and Ada code with the click of a mouse.”

Scorpion is an Eclipse-based tool set for embedded RTSJ (Real-Time Safety-Critical Java) and mixed-language development. The Scorpion environment features compilers and debuggers for Java, C, and Embedded C++, a builder for ahead-of-time Java file compilation, and a virtual machine (ScorpionVMTM) for executing real-time Java applications. Scorpion also features a smart linker that reduces code size by up to 80%, and a profiler that helps optimize speed/size tradeoffs by determining the best mix of compiled and interpreted code.

Scorpion delivers two orders of magnitude lower latency than competitive real-time Java solutions, and is the only real-time Java that provides deterministic garbage collection, a prerequisite for executing bounded, hard real-time applications. Scorpion is also the first Java solution to support mixed language development, enabling developers to combine Java with other languages such as C, Embedded C++, and Ada.

Scorpion is implemented as an Eclipse plug-in and can be utilized with any Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment, including DDC-I’s OpenArbor mixed-language IDE and Wind River Systems’ Workbench development suite.

WAMI support is available immediately for the Scorpion environment. Scorpion licensing options (subscription, perpetual, project, site, corporatewide) start as low as $5000 per seat.
