  • GSE Gesellschaft für Software-Engineering mbH, Tartan & OCS
    GSE Gesellschaft fuer Software Engineering was founded in 1978. Since then GSE has become one of the leading software companies for realtime applications. GSE offers a complete solution throughout the project lifecycle, from the planning phase through to implementation and maintenance.

    We have also been involved in the sales of software products since our inception. In the past these have been centred around the Ada programming language as many of our projects involved defence applications.

    We continue our involvement in Ada with our distributorship of the Tartan product line and the recently arranged distributorship for OC Systems:

  • OC Systems flagship PowerAda generates code for PowerPC 601, 603, 604, RS/6000 and IBM SP2. Included with PowerAda are a multi language debugger, a CORBA-compliant IDL compiler and various other useful tools. With LynxOS support, PowerAda offers embedded realtime-software capability. PowerAda is the first and only validated Ada95-compiler for PowerPC with absolutely the best code quality for Ada on PowerPC Architectures.

    Hello Universities: To You PowerAda will come at no cost!

  • Tartan offers highly sophisticated Ada development systems for embedded and realtime applications with unique strength in optimization techniques. Tartan Ada runtimes are very small and very fast. They can be stripped down according to the needs of your application. Supported targets are the Texas Instruments Floating Point DSPs TMS320C3x,C4x, Motorola 68xxx, i960 and MIL STD1750. Tartan development systems support Ada95 and consist of a highly optimizing compiler, linker, Ada runtimes, debugger and various tools. Tartans optimization skills combined with your programming skills will take full advantage of target specific capabilities and create the fast and efficient code needed in your realtime application.

  • IONA & OIS
    Exhibited Item: ORBIX

    Orbix is a full and complete implementation of the Object Management Group's (OMG'S) Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA). Orbix is the market leading implementation of CORBA, enabling programmers to develop distributed applications based on object-oriented client/server technology. These applications can be created from new or existing components combined to form new and more powerful software systems.

    Orbix/Ada supports rapid development of highly-efficient, distributed object-oriented applications that follow a transparent and straightforward, standards-based model. The Orbix/Ada implementation employs Ada 95, the first internationally standardised, fully object-oriented programming language. Ada 95 retains the original inherent integrity of the Ada 83 standard while meeting the sophisticated and complex requirements for modern software engineering programs. Ada 95 is the first ISO standard approved object oriented programming language. Fully interoperable with Orbix/C++, Orbix/Ada delivers the robust power of Ada 95 object-oriented programming. Cross language and platform integration are some of the major benefits of CORBA and Orbix. Programmers can now create complex systems by mixing Ada, SmallTalk, Java and C++ objects running across multiple platforms. Orbix provides for transparent, efficient, and standardized communications between the components, which act as a single application.

    Through the co-operative efforts of IONA and OIS (Objective Interface Systems), an American corporation with development expertise in and commitment to Ada, the world-wide Ada community can now take advantage of new, strategic, open-systems, object technology. Complex programs no longer need rely on expensive, proprietary solutions. Orbix/Ada opens the door to using Ada for large-scale banking, telecommunications, and engineering applications. Orbix/Ada makes building information systems manageable.

  • Rational
  • Rational Apex
    Rational Apex(R) Ada is an integrated environment for designing, developing, and maintaining complex Ada 95 and Ada 83 applications.
