Abstract : This version of the CAIS establishes interface requirements for the transportability of Ada toolsets software to be utilized in Department of Defense Ada Programming Support Environments (APSEs) known as the Ada integrated Environment and the Ada Language System. Strict adherence to this interface set will ensure that the Ada toolsets will possess the highest degree of portability across APSEs. The scope of the CAIS includes interfaces to those services traditionally provided by an operating system that affects tool transportability. Ideally, all APSE tools would be implementable using only the Ada language and the CAIS. This version of the CAIS is intended to provide most interfaces required by common tools. This version of the CAIS includes six interface areas: Node Model, Structural Nodes, File Nodes, Process Nodes, Device Nodes and Utilities. (Author)
