1. A method for producing embedded software, comprising:

  • providing one or more generic application handler programs, each such program comprising computer program code for performing generic application functions common to multiple types of hardware modules used in a communication system;

    generating specific application handler code to associate the generic application functions with specific functions of a device driver for at least one of the types of the hardware modules,wherein generating the specific application handler code comprises defining a specific element in the specific application handler code to be handled by one of the generic application functions for the at least one of the types of the hardware modules, and registering one of the specific functions of the device driver for use in handing the defined specific element; and

    compiling the generic application handler programs together with the specific application handler code to produce machine-readable code to be executed by an embedded processor in the at least one of the types of the hardware modules.
