Students with no prior programming experience will begin to program with this powerful language ideal for large-scale software system development, such as the Boeing 777. Ada 95 is the first object-oriented programming language to be internationally standardized. This allows the programs presented in the text to be completely por...

  Excellent course book for the Ada programming language!!!

I use this book in several Ada courses that I teach. This book is outstanding! The accompanying CD contains a validated compiler and all the examples in the textbook. The examples are excellent! Mark Oestmann
  Good text for an Intro to Ada95 class.

The text is an organized, well written, generously exampled introduction to Ada95 for the novice. It provides a good basis for object oriented programming using Ada95 for generics and privates (ADTs), it does not cover as fully or clearly inheritance and/or polymorphism. This book is apropriate for a 200 level CS class. I personally was disappointed with the amount of clear differentiation between Ada83 and Ada95. The section on tasking dismisses conditional Select entry as being beyond the scope of the book. Variant records are given too large a play. though they are a good intro to the thinking behind Ada polymorphism, in practice (Ada83) they are too code intensive and have serious short comings when used as private data elements. Overall, I think that this is a good, complete Ada95 introductory text. It is NOT an in-depth push the boundaries of the language or a "here's how to go from Ada 83 to Ada 95."
  An excellent introduction to Ada95.

Ada 95 is nicely written easy to understand book. I use this book in beginning Ada 95 course that I teach. It explains programming concepts and Ada 95 constructs in a interesting way by citing examples. It comes with a CD which has GNAT Ada95 compiler (for PC/MAC/UNIX) as well as key documentations like ARM, AARM, and Rationale in text, html and postscript format. I highly recommend this book to any one interested in learning Ada 95 from beginning. Great book!!!
