Abstract

When a real time application is re-configured, care must be taken that the set of the configured values used by the application remains in a valid and internally consistent state. This article proposes the use of value triplets for the configurables. Each value triplet gives visibility of the past value, future value and cut-over time of the configurable. The use of such triplets reduces real-time synchronization problems. Moreover, time intervals can be defined during which configurables can be safely changed without disturbing the application's functionality.
