Description The Real-time Specification for Java (RTSJ) has been designed to cover a large spectrum of real-time applica-tions, to achieve this goal the specification must cater to different real-time programming styles. This generality is essential for acceptance of Java by the industry but it also means that there are many error modes that appli-cation developers must deal with. The memory subsys-tem of the RTSJ is one particular area where the RTSJ’s generality creates complexity. This complexity is a prob-lem in high integrity systems as it can be the source of errors, and runtime overheads. The contribution of this paper is a new high integrity profile for memory safe programming in Real-time Java. This profile is notable in the sense that it does not re-strict expressiveness of RTSJ programs, yet it guarantees that no memory-related programming errors will occur at runtime. The profile is machine checkable, and sim-ple enough that errors can be readily corrected. While other profile have been put forward, this proposal is the first to have been evaluated on actual deployed software. 1.
