Abstract:

The purpose of this IDA Paper is to recommend a set of software standards for use by the Defense Logistics Agency. These recommendations are related to the effort by the DLA to evaluate the Ada programming language as an Agency standard. The recommendations cover three areas of software development software configuration management SCM, portability of Ada programs, and Ada coding standards. Although the principal scope of this paper is that of software standards and their potential use by the DLA, many of its recommendations, principally those concerning coding standards and portability, are derived from lessons learned during the earliest stages of the DLA Ada Prototype Project, which is described in Section 3.
