Abstract : The X Window System has come to be accepted as the standard for developing graphical user interfaces on mid to high range workstations. Ada interfaces to X through the use of bindings were developed in the late 1980's under the Software Technology for Adaptable Reliable Systems (STARS) contracts. The bindings have not been maintained, and as they become more obsolete, many are converting their applications to newer set of commercially available bindings. This paper discusses how the bindings work and two strategies for converting out of the STARS bindings.
