Ada Community Now Browses
Information with Ease
BURLINGTON, Mass.--(Nov. 26, 2001)
The Ada Resource
Association (ARA) announced today that it has revamped the
Ada Information Clearinghouse (AdaIC) website. The new site,
puts information about Ada's dependability, reusability, and
maintainability at users' fingertips. On almost every page,
drop-down menus allow the software community to click once
and access the full library of Ada success stories, studies,
and news announcements.
"The AdaIC site is designed to help a wide audience
discover the benefits of the Ada language," said
S. Tucker Taft, president of the ARA and CIO of AverCom, Inc.
"We want journalists and programmers new to Ada to have their
questions answered instantly. The new navigation system makes
The Ada programming language was designed to help
software engineers catch errors early when developing safety-
critical systems. The first object-oriented programming
language to become an ISO standard, Ada drives such embedded
systems as the metro systems in Paris, Hong Kong, Cairo,
Calcutta, and the upcoming subway line in New York City. For
two decades, the language has been used extensively in
aeronautics software from the Boeing 777 to the Space Station,
as well as in everything from video security systems to steel
mills. The AdaIC has been serving the needs of the Ada
community since 1989 as a news source, library of academic
articles, and repository of software.
The new www.adaic.org site also allows navigation
disabled. While the revamped www.adaic.org has put articles
and information crucial to the programming community up front,
the more arcane information that some still need is available
on the site's archives.
