Abstract:

The results of the evaluation of the JOVIAL Language as specified in Air Force Manual AFM 100-24 are contained in this report. This evaluation was based primarily on experience of users of JOVIAL Language dialects. The goal of this evaluation was to recommend deletions, retentions, modifications, and extensions to the JOVIAL language based on the users experience. The methodology of the evaluation consisted of collecting user experience data by means of a JOVIAL Application Questionnaire and interviews, and evaluating this data based on criteria established and documented in the Approach for Change. This report contains a list of JOVIAL features recommended for deletion and retention and detailed specifications of recommended modifications and extentions to the JOVIAL language. In addition, the report contains the detailed interview notes and questionnaire responses which were the basic data used to arrive at the recommendations.
