    1717RTEMS (Real­Time Executive for Multiprocessor Systems) is a free real­time operating system designed  for  deeply  embedded  systems.  It  is  a  free and open  source  solution  that  supports  multi processor systems and has been ported to over a dozen CPU architectures and includes support for  over  100  embedded boards.  RTEMS  is  designed  to  support  applications  with  the  most  stringent  real time requirements while being compatible with open standards such as POSIX. it includes optional  functional  features  such  as  TCP/IP  and  various  file  systems  while  still  offering minimum executable sizes under 20 KB in useful configurations. RTEMS  is  used  in  a  wide  variety  of  application  domains  including  space (NASA and ESA),  physics  research, communications and industrial control as well as in general computer science research projects.

    19 With such mission critical application and with RTEMS version 4.10 release very much in vicinity, testing is of highest priority. The major part of this workout proposal is related to Code Coverage Improvement and also getting a nice UI based coverage analysis tool functioning for RTEMS.
     19With such mission critical application and with RTEMS version 4.10 release very much in vicinity, testing/stability is of highest priority. Code coverage evaluates efficiency and exposes faulty code which in turn iterates into a more stable system. One major objective of this workout proposal is related to Code Coverage Improvement, a follow up on GSoC 2009 Code Coverage Analysis project and also getting a nice UI based coverage analysis tool functioning for RTEMS.

    2121The ultimate goal of Google Summer of Code 2009 projects were to get integrated into the source tree for 4.10 release with additional improvements. This in combination with several other tasks listed in the [http://rtems.com/wiki/index.php/RTEMS_Workout_at_FOSS.IN#Tasks Tasks] section forms the secondary objective of this workout.
