Chapter 5: Tasking and Real-Time

This chapter describes various improvements in the tasking and real-time areas for Ada 2005.
There are only a few changes to the core tasking model itself. One major extension, however, is the ability to combine the interface feature described in an earlier chapter with the tasking model; this draws together the object-oriented and tasking models of Ada which previously were disjoint aspects of the language.
There are also many additional predefined packages in the Real-Time Systems annex concerning matters such as scheduling and timing; these form the major topic of this chapter.
