Programming in Ada 2005

 

John Barnes

 

“This book is going to be a tremendous resource that will prove useful for many years.  It combines a broad description of the entire language, including its predefined libraries, with an in-depth study of a number of areas of particular interest such as object-oriented techniques or concurrency.  It includes extensive examples showing how the numerous features of Ada can be made to work together in practical situations.”

 ~ Pascal Leroy, Chairman of the Ada Rapporteur Group.

 

 

Programming in Ada 2005 is the definitive tutorial and reference for a ground-breaking new version of Ada (Ada 2005), a significant revision of the language of choice for applications where safety, security and reliability are paramount.  

 

The major changes from Ada 95 are:

 

Ø      A new OO model to incorporate Java-style multiple inheritance and more rigorous error analysis prior to execution;

Ø      Synchronized interfaces to unify the OO and concurrent domains – a radical innovation in language design;

Ø      More flexible but totally safe manipulation of pointers;

Ø      An improved structure enabling large programs to be decomposed more easily;

Ø      Many extensions to the Real-Time facilities, keeping Ada ahead of other languages for embedded applications;

Ø      Improved interfacing to other systems and languages;

Ø      Enhanced standard library support including containers.

 

John Barnes was a key member of the original Ada design team and has been a pivotal figure in its evolution ever since.  Over 150,000 students and software engineers have learned Ada from previous editions – widely praised for their witty and urbane style.  He is also the author of High Integrity Software: The SPARK Approach to Safety and Security.

Synopsis:

The definitive text on the new version of Ada – Ada 2005 – written by one of the language’s creators.  Barnes is to Ada what Kernighan & Ritchie are to C, or as Stroustrup is to C++.  Previous editions have sold over 150,000 copies.

Synopsis:

Combines a description of the language, including its predefined libraries, with an in-depth study of a number of areas of particular interest such as object-oriented techniques or concurrency. This book includes examples showing how the numerous features of Ada can be made to work together in practical situations.
