This paper gives a taxonomy for the evaluation of object-oriented design methods and implementation languages for the construction of distributed real-time systems. This taxonomy is aimed at answering the following main questions: (1) how well do current approaches support the design of non-functional system features like concurrency and the specification of allocation, timing and fault tolerance constraints and (2) how can we discern essential properties of such methods and languages in order to point out the strengths and weaknesses of contemporary approaches.
