The future of a missed deadline
My recent paper was accepted in COORDINATION 2013
In this paper, we introduce a real-time actor-based programming language and provide a formal but intuitive operational semantics for it. The language supports a general mechanism for handling exceptions raised by missed deadlines and the specification of application-level scheduling policies. We discuss the implementation of the language and illustrate the use of its constructs with an industrial case study from distributed e-commerce and marketing domain.
