Real-time Java combines ease of programming in the Java language with the performance required by applications that must conform to real-time constraints. Extensions to the Java language provide features for real-time environments that are lacking in the traditional Java runtime environment. This article, the first in a three-part series, describes some of these features and explains how you can apply them to enable real-time performance in your own applications.

While the RTSJ API certainly seems useful for things like audio processing, are there any good free (as in speech or beer) JVM’s available that actually support these extensions?
Sun has an implementation at http://java.sun.com/javase/technologies/realtime/rts/ , but afaics they only provide evaluation and ‘academic’ licenses for free.
