This is a summary of the discussions on two requirement areas: Asynchronous Transfer of Control Interrupt Handling
Among the more radical proposals for changes to the Ada standard in Ada9X are those advocating the introduction of object-oriented features exemplified by languages such as Smalltalk and Eiffel. DRAGOON is a language which supports the fundamental concepts of object-oriented programming in an...
This is a summary of the discussions on three requirement areas: Protected Records; Time Management; Distribution.
This position paper discusses issues related to the recent effort to add real-time extensions to the posix (1003.1 |3|) standard, and in particular to the proposal for light-weight tasking in the form of pthreads |2|. It is claimed that this effort is relevant to the Ada community, especially in...
As a part of the Software Engineering Institute's Real-Time Software in Ada project, personnel from IBM, the Naval Weapons Center, and SEI carried out an effort to construct a realistic hard real-time avionics application using Ada, including Ada tasking and rendezvous. In this joint study, an...
Communications among multiple Ada programs is a must, either as an explicit link or as an invisible link hidden beneath a distributed Ada veneer. Unisys has defined two Ada package specifications for inter-program communications, that are derived from the requirements developed at the Third...
The Ada language has been faulted for not providing an efficient and reliable mechanism to support periodic execution of tasks. Formulations that rely on delay statements in each periodic task or on user-supplied dispatcher tasks are unreliable or inefficient. This paper presents a simple model...
Three groups of requirements were considered in this session: Object-Oriented Programming or more specifically, the mechanisms of inheritance and polymorphism. General References Finalisation Experience of object-oriented programming amongst the majority of delegates was fairly limited, so...
Real-time systems have special performance requirements that are often impossible to satisfy utilizing only general purpose Ada compilation and run-time environments. It is proposed that a secondary Performance Standard be produced which explains and documents the programming paradigms used by...
