Ada Resource Association Adds
to Global Membership
SALT LAKE CITY--Software Technology Conference (April 30, 2003)--The Ada
Resource Association (ARA) is pleased to announce the addition of its newest
member, ACT Europe, which develops components of the GNAT Pro technology for
the Ada programming language.
Founded and led by Cyrille Comar and Franco Gasperoni, ACT Europe is the Paris-
based sister company to the long-standing ARA member Ada Core Technologies. ACT
Europe has played a major role in advancing Ada and GNAT Pro usage in the
European software industry.
"ACT Europe represents a broad base of Ada developers and embedded
systems users," said S. Tucker Taft, president of both the ARA and of SofCheck,
Inc. "They will add significantly to the ARA's effectiveness in serving the
language's international community."
"We fully support the ARA's objectives," Dr. Gasperoni said. "Activities such
as the careful evolution of the Ada language, publication of Ada successes, and
maintenance of an effective Ada information web site are very important to the
language's growth. By joining the ARA we hope to bring fresh ideas and a
European perspective to these activities."
A leading European developer of Ada 95 technology, ACT Europe offers native,
embedded and safety-critical Ada solutions on a large variety of systems. The
company specializes in project support and consulting for users of GNAT Pro
Development Environment for Ada 95, a programming language designed for
embedded systems. ACT Europe also develops components of GNAT Pro technology
including the GtkAda graphical toolkit, the new GNAT Programming System (GPS)
IDE, and the GNAT Pro High Integrity Edition.
With members that span the globe, the ARA is a trade association of companies
whose products and services represent more than 90 percent of the Ada
development tools marketplace.
