Rationale for Ada 2005
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.
