About this Textbook

Ada is the programming language of choice for high integrity software systems and is used extensively in industries such as transportation and aerospace. This textbook is intended for experienced programmers (advanced students and practicing software engineers) who need to master software design and programming in Ada. Special features of the book include:

• The constructs of the language are taught within the context of large case studies such as a discrete event simulation.

• Object-oriented programming, concurrency, and embedded and real-time systems are emphasized. 

Ada for Software Engineers explains the language concepts and the terminology of the standards document, the Ada Reference Manual (ARM).

• Extracts from the ARM are used throughtout and there are extensive cross references to the ARM. A comprehensive glossary and quizzes assist the reader in developing the ability to use the ARM as a practical reference. 

• Comparisons with familiar languages like C and Java are given to facilitate the transition to Ada.

• The features of Ada 2005 are used routinely, but they are carefully identified, so that programmers using Ada 95 will also find the textbook useful. 

• The companion website contains the full source code of nearly 100 case studies and 100 technical quizzes.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition: “The text covers all of the main parts of Ada that an experienced programmer will be looking to understand … .The examples are generally quite good and well formatted … . This book would probably be a good fit for someone who is experienced both in programming and in reading specifications, who already knows … Ada to write simple programs and who has a copy of the Ada Reference Manual at hand to look things up as required.” (Jeffery Putnam, ACM Computing Reviews, February, 2009)
