ADL: a graphical design language for real time parallel applications
Designing parallel applications is generally experienced as a tedious and difficult task, especially when hard real-time performance requirements have to be met. This paper discusses on-going work concerning the construction of a Design Entry System which supports the design phase of parallel real-time industrial application development. In particular, in this paper we pay attention to the development and implementation of a graphical Application Design Language. The work is part of the ESPRIT project Hamlet which focuses on industrial application of transputer-based systems for commercially strategic real-time applications.
