Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 750)


This paper presents a set of integrated commercial tools (both software and hardware), for use in courses on real- time systems and software engineering. A background for adopting such a set of tools is given and team projects, in which these tools have been used, are also outlined.
