"Lynx Real-Time Systems, Inc., today announced delivery of Hewlett-Packard Company's (HP) ChaiVM, embedded virtual-machine technology on Lynx' BlueCat(TM) Linux operating system (OS). BlueCat users can now field soft real-time Java applications in a wide range of products using the Java-compliant embedded virtual machine from HP."

"BlueCat offers a fast, interpretive byte code execution and a Java native interface to bind Java threads to BlueCat pthreads for deterministic scheduling. BlueCat features a reduced run-time footprint, as small as 600K, and concurrent, incremental garbage collection contributing to predictable soft real-time performance."

" 'HP believes in offering its customers freedom of choice. Chai and BlueCat are obvious choices for embedded applications today,' said William Woo, general manager of HP's Embedded Software Operation. 'We believe that Lynx' BlueCat Linux OS is an excellent complement to the Chai suite of products, enabling appliance manufacturers to add further value to their appliances.' "
