Embedded Industry With Java for
OS-9 and Debugging Tools

Microware First RTOS to Provide Remote Debugging Feature -August 19, 1998

DES MOINES, Iowa – Microware Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: MWAR), supplier of the world-leading OS-9 real time operating system (RTOS), today announced the first visual remote debugging capability to Java in embedded applications. Coupled with Objectsoft’s DebugMaster, Java for OS-9 provides increased debugging functionality for Java developers through a remote host.

Before the development of the DebugMaster toolset, debugging a device separate from the original platform was primitive and difficult. "This is the first time that visual debugging of Java in a remote device is possible," said Bob Sorensen, Java marketing manager at Microware. "With this tool set, the developer can visually debug Java applications on the target device from the desktop, greatly reducing development time."

DebugMaster provides powerful debugging that includes source and sourceless debugging, support for exceptions and variables and starting of multiple debug sessions. "We are excited about the functionality that DebugMaster brings to Java for OS-9," said Kevin Clark, President of Objectsoft. "Remote debugging and the ability to provide multiple remote sessions from any client to any remote host is a feature that will prove very valuable for Java developers working on embedded applications."

Microware is the first RTOS company to license and certify Java. Microware’s Java for OS-9 is being supplied to customers for use in devices such as digital televisions, digital set-top boxes, mobile phones, and smart phones.
