4.0 out of 5 stars Taste and Intelligence:1 Fashion:0 Wake up to Sparc Ada!, 7 Nov. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: High Integrity ADA: The Spark Approach (Hardcover)
This book is a must for developers who have the good sense to ignore fashion and consider developing mission critical software in Ada. Everyone else is going to find the material dull! Barnes has done a good job in explaining the concepts as well as the practicalities of SPARC and has even managed to expand my understanding of Ada (and I thought I knew everything). The selection of language features used does not inhibit programming creativity (except for the loss of Generics) and combined with the SPARC Annotations, give the opportunity to build simpler, more correct programs. Compare this with state-of-the-ark C++! I particularly like Barnes pragmatic approach to Formal proofs. These Mission Critical developers are not the rabid, ideological bunch I thought they were! SPARC Ada is a doddle to learn and apply successfully, a victory for common sense.
