Hi all,
here at TU Dresden we successfully ported the Kaffe to L4 [1,2] using 
the development environment L4Env [3]. Since DROPS [4] --an operating 
system on top of L4--is real-time capable, one of our students 
(Alexander) is investigating the possibility to integrate RTSJ into 
Kaffe. Is or has there been a similar project for Kaffe? Are you 
interested in such work?

As he went through Kaffe's source code, he found several places where 
the JVM has to be modified to conform to the RT spec (e.g., memory 
access control, and such). Is anyone interested in discussing these 
changes with him?
