1 In this paper we address the problem of combining two issues that are standardized separately in two Ada 95 annexes: Real-Time Systems (Annex D) and Distributed Systems (Annex E). With these annexes it is possible to build applications with real-time requirements, or alternatively distributed applications; but real-time distributed applications are not directly supported. In this paper we propose extensions to the Distributed Systems Annex that would provide support for developing distributed

The paper proposes an interface for assigning priorities to the messages in the interconnection networks, and also to the tasks executing remote operations, in a way that avoids priority inversions. It also addresses the issues of configuration of the RPC handler tasks and non blocking asynchronous remote procedure calls.
