I don't have links, but we (NaturalBridge) played with it,
and I think it depends heavily on your definition of "real
time Java", as well as what your programs look like.  It also
took plenty of fiddling to get it working in a satisfactory
way.  Adding soft, weak, phantom, and JNI weak references
was a real party (I thought it was easy at first, and then
it wasn't).
