Ada is a modern programming language designed for large, long-lived applications – and embedded systems in particular – where reliability and efficiency are essential.
The WG9 committee, after discussions with the ARG and with members of the Ada community, has instructed the ARG to complete the Amendment to Ada 2005 so that ISO standardization of the new version can be completed by 2012. This is a relatively short horizon. but it matches the interval between previous releases, demonstrates that the language continues to evolve with software theory and practice, and at the same time places a bound on the changes to the language, and ensures that they do not present an undue implementation burden on existing compilers.

Ada is a modern programming language designed for large, long-lived applications – and embedded systems in particular – where reliability and efficiency are essential. It was originally developed in the early 1980s (this version is generally known as Ada 83) by a team led by Dr. Jean Ichbiah at CII-Honeywell-Bull in France. The language was revised and enhanced in an upward compatible fashion in the early 1990s, under the leadership of Mr. Tucker Taft from Intermetrics in the U.S. The resulting language, Ada 95, was the first internationally standardized (ISO) Object-Oriented Language.

Thanks to its rich support for object-orientation, concurrency and pre/post conditions, Ada is an excellent target language for automatic code generation from UML models. The following modeling environments offer industrial-strenght solutions for Ada code generation. Read More »
