Dear Eric J. Bruno & Greg Bollella ,
Welcome to Java Ranch and thanks for offering your book on javaranch.
I read the review on Amazon and was excited to see that you are Sun's system engineers. Great!

Coming to the book,
How useful will be the book to the common developer of Java applications?
What is the potential of Java RTS?
What are the applications of Java RTS?
I have been reading of RT OS's lately, does Windows is one of them?
What is the difference between Embedded systems and RTS?



Thanks and Regards,

Thanks! Here are some answers:

How useful will be the book to the common developer of Java applications?
EB: Not very useful unless you're solving a real-time problem.

What is the potential of Java RTS?
EB: Very big! :-)

What are the applications of Java RTS?
EB: Any application with a time-based requirement. We're working with companies in the military/aerospace industry, financial services, industrial automation, manufacturing, and so on.

I have been reading of RT OS's lately, does Windows is one of them?
EB: Windows is not a real-time OS. Specific to Java RTS, it supports Solaris 10, Red Hat MRG Linux, and SUSE Linux Enterprise Real-Time

What is the difference between Embedded systems and RTS?
EB: An embedded system is one where the software is buried inside of some sort of device. It's not an interactive computer, per se, but something like an appliance. Java RTS is simply a VM that will run on any general purpose computing device, embedded or not, that meets its minimal hardware requirements. Sun, however, has different licensing requirements for both Java SE and Java RTS when embedded within a device.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
