Not Available The Navy has made applying Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technologies to the development of naval combat systems a critical priority. Under this new development paradigm, as combat system data processing components become obsolete or requirements grow, faster and less expensive COTS hardware can be rapidly introduced through technology refresh programs. Transportable Middleware (TM) provides the critical mechanism allowing complex military application software to be ported and scaled to new COTS platforms quickly. TM provides a layer of software that completely isolates the application software from the underlying hardware and operating systems. DSR proposes developing a processing architecture that will provide a pure Java interface into existing TM developed real-time systems. DSR will focus on the development of HMIs for embedded real-time systems in pure Java to ensure: (1) application portability, (2) the development of a pure Java interface into the existing publish-subscribe Transportable Middleware, and (3) the development of tools to verify that pure Java applications can inter-operate with the embedded processor regardless of the current processor, operating system, and Java Virtual Machine. Emphasis will be placed on the development of reusable objects (Java Beans) common to military applications, promoting code reuse, and fast and effective HMI development.
