Ada Gets Eclipsed IDE

It was bound to happen. ADA developers can now take advantage of the eclipse integrated development environment (IDE). Aonix's Ada Development Toolkit, AonixADT, integrates the Ada compiler support from the company with the open-source Eclipse project. Thus, developers can take advantage of a growing number of third-party plug-ins for the Eclipse environment.

The AonixADT includes an ObjectAda-compatible Ada compiler, which is an Ada-language-senstive editor integrated with an Ada build package. The Ada symbolic debugger comes with the editor.

The package supports self-hosted Windows development as well as cross-development versions for Linux and Solaris. Ada targets safety-critical applications.

The Aonix Ada Development Toolkit goes for $995 per seat.
