NewMonics Asserts Leadership Over Mission-Critical Java
Tucson, AZ - NewMonics has released PERC 4.0, a development platform for complex embedded systems.
Tucson, AZ - NewMonics has released PERC 4.0, a development platform for complex embedded systems. This release adds real-time timers for accurate triggering of time-driven tasks, improved memory management for greater system flexibility within smaller total memory footprint, and a new direct-memory API which allows the QuickPERC native compiler to optimize access to memory-mapped I/O ports and buffers that are shared with legacy components written in C or C++.
The PERC virtual machine (VM) management API and shell allow programmers to monitor internal operation and adjust configuration of the virtual machine. This release adds new VM management services, offering improved control over the memory management subsystem. This enables creation of autonomous policy-based management of complex software systems. PERC-enabled applications manage themselves, adjusting the memory management configuration to optimize memory utilization, balance the effort between execution of application code and garbage collection activities, and eliminate the risk of out-of-memory conditions. Additional memory subsystem improvements delivered in the 4.0 release include more efficient object representations, more flexible handling of very large objects, and tighter packing of virtual machine startup code than previous versions.
This release further improves Java to C and C++ integration by using native tasks for all Java threads. This accelerates the Java Native Interface (JNI), simplifies coordination between Java and C tasks, and enables the use of mainstream task visualization tools to facilitate understanding and optimization of hybrid Java/C applications.
The product is immediately available and priced from USD $4995.
