Abstract:

The Ada community, including government, industry, and academic personnel, needs the capability to assess APSEs Ada Programming Support Environments and their components, and to determine their conformance to applicable standards e.g., DoD-STD-1838, the CAIS standard. The technology required to fully satisfy this need is extensive and largely unavailable it cannot be acquired by a single government-sponsored, professional society-sponsored, or private effort. The purpose of the APSE Evaluation and Validation EV Task is to provide a focal point for addressing the need by 1 Identifying and defining specific technology requirements 2 Developing selected elements of this technology 3 encouraging others to develop additional elements and 4 Collecting information describing elements which already exist. The purpose of the EV Reference Manual this document is to provide information that will help users to 1 Gain an overall understanding of APSEs and approaches to their assessment 2 Find useful reference information e.g., definitions about specific elements and relationships between elements and 3 Find criteria and metrics for assessing tools and APSEs, and techniques for performing such assessments. kr
