Abstract: The programming language Ada was developed by the U.S. Department of Defense to help control the increasing cost of its software. It is fast becoming the major general-purpose computer language. The language features type declarations, constrained and unconstrained array processing, and packages. It supports modem software engineering methods such as structured programming, data abstraction, top-down program development, re-use of general-purpose components, and separate compilation of program components. Apex is an easy-to-use Ada software-engineering environment, developed by Rational Software Corporation, that helps to develop large, complex projects in a minimum time frame. Some features of Apex are as follows: (A.) rational subsystems for architectural control; (B.) rational CMVC, a sophisticated system for configuration and version control; (C.) an intelligent Ada editor; (D.) tools for Ada compilation management; (E.) an Ada debugger; (F.) a modem graphical user interface; (G.) tools for customizing the Apex user interface; and (H.) features for integrating Apex with other tools.
