Ada joins Java as Aonix joins Eclipse- ADTmag.com

Ada joins Java as Aonix joins Eclipse- ADTmag.com
While many Java toolmakers are members of Eclipse, which bills itself as 'a community committed to the implementation of a universal platform for tools integration,' the newest member is also bringing Ada.

Aonix, an international company with headquarters in San Diego and Paris, also makes Java tools, but it is porting its Ada95 tool suite to the Eclipse platform, said Jacques Brygier, the firm's vice president of marketing.

Developed in the late 1970s for the U.S. Department of Defense, which was seeking to bring standardization to the Pentagon's various programming projects then thought to be using 450 different languages, Ada survives in areas ranging from academics to avionics.
