The authors show how to perform real-time automatic garbage collection of objects possessing their own thread of control. Beyond its interest as a novel real-time problem, the relevance of automatic management and concurrent objects to real-time applications is briefly discussed. The specific model of concurrent objects used in the paper is explained. A definition of real-time garbage collection is given and an algorithm satisfying this definition is described. An analysis of the relationship… CONTINUE READING
