<p>The suitability of compile-time code analysis and rearrangement to improve the predictability of object-oriented software in dynamic real-time environments is discussed. The techniques combine the abstraction of object-oriented software design with the power of static, compiler-based code analysis to develop and enhance the predictability of real-time software. They also counteract the effects of unpredictable delays caused by the arrival, servicing, and execution of dynamic tasks, and give the application latitude to react to delays caused by hardware, external events, and the loading of communication media.</p>
