Getting up and running with Ada has never been easier.

GNAT Pro Developer is designed for developers and teams that want to move from C and C++, and bring the reliability of Ada to their projects.

The Ada language was designed for, and has traditionally been used in, domains such as avionics and defense where reaching the highest levels of software reliability is imperative. GNAT Pro Developer was created specifically to help software developers transition to Ada so they can take advantage of the language's benefits: building reliable and efficient applications while saving overall development, verification and maintenance effort.

Introducing Ada into an existing project is simple, with help from both the language itself and the GNAT Pro Developer environment.

Ada has a straightforward and consistent syntax, with natural language keywords that make the source code easy to read. And the GNAT technology is intrinsically multi-lingual, making it easy to mix Ada with code in C, C++ and other languages.

Not an all-or-nothing scenario

Ada has specific features for composing a program with modules in multiple languages, so you can easily introduce Ada code into existing projects. And binding generators let you call external libraries from Ada or vice versa. Since the GNAT Pro compiler is based on the multilingual GCC code generation technology, mixed-language programming is natural and simple.

Integrate with Existing Tools

AdaCore’s GNAT Studio visual IDE is extensible and adaptable, allowing external tools (such as version control systems) to be integrated into a project’s infrastructure. And GCC-based tools such as the GDB debugger fully support Ada, again making mixed-language development a straightforward process.
