Overview

The book supplies an intensive study of ANSI-standard Ada with a focus on software engineering and object-oriented design. The book reflects Grady Booch's expertise in object-oriented programming by introducing an object-oriented development method that exploits the power of Ada in managing complex software systems. This edition also contains a new chapter on Ada's impact on software engineering and the software crisis.
