To meet the program objectives, partnerships were formed among the
Department of Defense, Department of Energy, and ten private sector
companies. Together, the partners are working to stimulate utilization of
the Ada 95 programming language within the government, academic,
industrial, and research communities by bringing to market a variety of
products that support the Ada programming language -- the world's first
internationally standardized, object-oriented computer programming
The program's objective is to expand and strengthen the supplier base of
products supporting the Ada programming language, to satisfy the DOD's
requirement for Ada 95 technologies. The ten companies awarded
contracts will provide products such as bindings, compilers, commonly
used tools, development libraries, visual work space and computer-based
training to promote smooth and successful Ada 95 implementations.
A brief description of each company's product plan follows:
For More Information
Stony Brook Ada 95 -- Stony Brook Software
A complete Ada 95
development system for DOS, 32-bit DOS extended, WIN16, and WIN32
applications development. This tool includes an optimizing Ada 95
compiler, development environment, linker, object librarian, debuggers,
a WIN32 profiler, and resource editor.
Claw for Mircrosoft Windows NT/95 -- R.R. Software
A binding and set of tools that will allow application
developers to build Microsoft Windows NT/95 systems using Ada 95, and is
not tied to the underlying C API routines.
MIL-STD-1553B Bindings for Ada 95 -- Noetic Software
Thick bindings that will provide a class library of data structures,
operators, and objects to implement hardware/bus initialization, bus
control, remote terminal and bus monitor operations. Also available
will be thin bindings that provide a low-level interface to a particular
manufacturer's MIL-STD-1553B hardware.
GNAT Ada 95 for Apple Macintosh -- Tenon Intersystems
A POSIX-conformant UNIX compiler with a full Internet protocol suite and a
software development environment based on GNU.
DACS/ASIS-95 and Test Coverage Tool -- DDC-I
An implementation of the Ada Semantic Interface Specification (ASIS) 95
for the DDC-I Ada 95 Compiler System (DACS-95) and a test environment.
A new DDC-I- developed, state-of-the-art Ada 95 compiler front-end, will
be interfaced to both existing DDC-I Ada 83 compiler system code
generators and several new ANDF-based code generators developed by DDC-I
and other compiler vendors.
Acumentor/Orbix Ada -- Objective Interface Systems
Allows developers to create distributed applications based on the Object
Management Group's (OMG's) Common Object Request Broker Architecture
AdaMentor 95 -- AdaSoft
A computer-based training course based upon the new textbook Programming in Ada 95. The course will be
delivered over the Internet, implementing a "distributed classroom"
Ada 95 Upgrade for VisualAge -- OC Systems
Makes the power and features of IBM's award-winning VisualAge C++ available for Ada 95.
The upgrade enables users to develop software applications by visually
connecting software "parts" written in Ada 95 and C++. The Ada 95 code
is automatically generated for connecting software parts, and users are
able to add new Ada 95 parts to the VisualAge palette.
AppletMagic -- Intermetrics
An Ada 95 compiler that generates Java "bytecodes." The compiler allows its users to construct
portable Java applets or applications using the Ada 95 language.
SemWeb (Semantic Webs) -- WPL Laboratories
Provides a browser and editor to support the creation and use of modeled Web sites. It
provides Ada class libraries that define an application programming
interface (API) for dynamically creating files in hypertext mark-up
language (HTML) and other standard and consistent WWW formats.
The Ada Information Clearinghouse (AdaIC) provides flyers with
additional product and contact information for each of the ATIP-P
