DDC-I Announces WAMI Support for Scorpion Real-Time Java Development Environment

New Wizard for Advanced Mixed-Language Integration (WAMI) Enables Real-Time Java Applications to Utilize Existing C, EC++, and Ada Code

DDC-I, a leading supplier of development tools for safety-critical applications, today announced WAMI (Wizard for Advanced Mixed-Language Integration) support for its Scorpion real-time Java development environment. The new wizard simplifies mixed-language development and legacy migration by enabling real-time Java applications to utilize existing C, Embedded C++, and Ada code.

Scorpion has the unique ability to match native Java method calls directly to existing code in C or Ada, said Bob Morris, president and CEO of DDC-I. WAMI makes mixed-language development easier then ever, enabling Java developers to utilize existing C, Embedded C++, and Ada code with the click of a mouse.

Scorpion is an Eclipse-based tool set for embedded RTSJ (Real-Time Safety-Critical Java) and mixed-language development. The Scorpion environment features compilers and debuggers for Java, C, and Embedded C++, a builder for ahead-of-time Java file compilation, and a virtual machine (ScorpionVMTM) for executing real-time Java applications. Scorpion also features a smart linker that reduces code size by up to 80%, and a profiler that helps optimize speed/size tradeoffs by determining the best mix of compiled and interpreted code.

Scorpion delivers two orders of magnitude lower latency than competitive real-time Java solutions, and is the only real-time Java that provides deterministic garbage collection, a prerequisite for executing bounded, hard real-time applications. Scorpion is also the first Java solution to support mixed language development, enabling developers to combine Java with other languages such as C, Embedded C++, and Ada.

Scorpion is implemented as an Eclipse plug-in and can be utilized with any Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment, including DDC-Is OpenArbor mixed-language IDE and Wind River Systems Workbench development suite.

WAMI support is available immediately for the Scorpion environment. Scorpion licensing options (subscription, perpetual, project, site, corporatewide) start as low as $5000 per seat.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
