A distributed programming system designed to support the construction and execution of a real-time distributed program is presented. The system is to facilitate the construction of a distributed program from sequential programs written in different programming languages and to simplify the loading and execution of the distributed program. The system is based on a distributed configuration language. The language is used to write the configuration of a distributed program, which includes resource requirements, process declarations, port connections, real-time constraints, process assignment constraints, and process control statements.
