Abstract : This report describes AIRMICS involvement with the development of three prototypes using AT and T's Application Connectivity Engineering (ACE) tool. The prototyping tool, ETIP, and the communications and file transfer tool, ESCORT, were used. This report includes the lessons learned during this project. The principle lesson learned was that success in using ACE demands an environment that provides the programmers with a wide array of tools to simplify and coordinate their work. In this report summaries of the experiences we had with ACE are included, as well as, presenting the tools that we developed and those which were supplied to us by other organizations, most notable Information Foundation. This report is intended primarily for programmers who are familiar with ACE....ACE, Rapid prototyping, Rapid development, ETIP
