The DoD is in the process of gathering information on the status of market offerings for software engineering environments. This paper identifies and analyzes 1 compiler and computer-aided software engineering CASE tools that support the software engineering process for applications written in the Ada and C programming languages, and 2 associated training and education available for each language. The primary focus was on business systems application domains such as artificial intelligence, computer-aided design computer-aided manufacturing, and embedded systems were excluded. Only commercial-off-the-shelf COTS products from U.S. vendors were considered. The data provided will be used by the DoD in the development of a business case to determine whether any waivers to the Ada requirement for business systems may be warranted.
