Safety Critical Java Technology standard
I recently came across a draft document called Safety Critical Java
I am trying to understand the significance of the standard specified
in this document, and I have a few questions about it.
Is anyone doing or planning to do any safety-critical programming in
Java? If so, are you aware of this standard? Are you using it or
planning to use it? Are you aware of anyone else who is using it?
If the decision were yours to make, would you consider developing
safety-critical software in Java (at the level of, say, DO-178B Level
A or B) without basing it on this standard? In other words, would you
consider this standard optional or essential?
Also, how does Scala fit in, or does it? Can Scala code conform to
this standard by calling the associated Java libraries? What are the
chances of a standard like this being produced for Scala?
Comments are welcome. Thanks.
