Aonix has released the latest version of the ObjectAda development environment, with Linux as the first supported operating system. ObjectAda 8.2 supports an Eclipse-based development environment for mission-critical software solutions and integrates a number of product augmentations. For instance, the ability to attach the symbolic debugger to a running Ada application makes ObjectAda useful for situations in which programming errors do not surface until after the test and debug phase has been completed.
ObjectAda 8.2 is the first ObjectAda release that allows developers to choose between the traditional Aonix IDE for development and the new AonixADT Eclipse plug-in. AonixADT incorporates Ada-project awareness, an Ada-language sensitive editor, Ada-language compile and build capabilities, and a complete Ada debugger interface.
Since AonixADT is based on Eclipse, this same integrated development environment also supports development with the Java, C, and C++ languages. As well as the basic compiler development package, the ObjectAda Project Pack contains the Ada-ASSURED advanced editor which provides additional language-sensitive features and style-guideline conformance checking. The Pack contains the AdaNav toolset for system HTML source-navigation capabilities, call and unit-tree graphical reporting, and automatic data dictionary generation. The AdaNav profiler provides run-time performance reporting to identify application hot spots.
