Abstract

Large scale software production would be more cost-effective if programs were habitually built by putting together previously written and tested program fragments. The Ada package facilities were designed with this object in mind. Part I of the book deals with the general issues of Ada software re-use and addresses the problems of making software components sufficiently general in their application and sufficiently straightforward to use. Part II presents a pair of case studies of Ada re-use in practice, illustrating both managerial and technical issues. The book concludes with an extensive set of Ada re-use guidelines.
