real time

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The immediate response to events as they happen. For example, an ecommerce application which takes a product order and responds with an acknowledgement or a message indicating that an item is out of stock while the user is logged on is a real-time system. A program which checks if an item is in stock and emails the user some hours later is not a real-time system.
