4.0 out of 5 stars Good text for an Intro to Ada95 class.
The text is an organized, well written, generously exampled introduction to Ada95 for the novice. It provides a good basis for object oriented programming using Ada95 for generics and privates (ADTs), it does not cover as fully or clearly inheritance and/or polymorphism. This book is apropriate for a 200 level CS class. I personally was disappointed with the amount of...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Recommended!!!!
If you like to know the most complicated way to program then this is the book for you! Ada95 is a very long winded programming language and this book makes a tedious language even worse to study. Purchase at your own risk!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good text for an Intro to Ada95 class., 4 Aug. 1998

The text is an organized, well written, generously exampled introduction to Ada95 for the novice. It provides a good basis for object oriented programming using Ada95 for generics and privates (ADTs), it does not cover as fully or clearly inheritance and/or polymorphism. This book is apropriate for a 200 level CS class. I personally was disappointed with the amount of clear differentiation between Ada83 and Ada95. The section on tasking dismisses conditional Select entry as being beyond the scope of the book. Variant records are given too large a play. though they are a good intro to the thinking behind Ada polymorphism, in practice (Ada83) they are too code intensive and have serious short comings when used as private data elements. Overall, I think that this is a good, complete Ada95 introductory text. It is NOT an in-depth push the boundaries of the language or a "here's how to go from Ada 83 to Ada 95."

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent course book for the Ada programming language!!!, 29 Oct. 1997
By A Customer
I use this book in several Ada courses that I teach. This book is outstanding! The accompanying CD contains a validated compiler and all the examples in the textbook. The examples are excellent!
