Abstract

The suitability of Microsoft's integrated development environment, Visual Studio.NET, which includes C# programming language and .NET framework, to run in real time systems, is discussed. Microsoft released the .NET compact framework as a version of the .NET framework for the scaled-down operating systems such as Windows CE 3.0 and handheld devices. The platform does not support many of the thread management constructs that real-time systems states. It is found that the platform has unbounded execution of its garbage-collected environment and lacks threading constructs to adequately support schedulability and determinism, which makes it unsuitable for real time applications.
