Abstract : This document is a feasibility study of reimplementing the JAMPS(JINTACCS Automated Message Processing System) applications software using the Ada programming language. Existing JAMPS software is written in 'C' language; reimplementation is under consideration to promote the reusability of the JAMPS software and decrease JAMPS life cycle costs. Ada software development tools for the MC68000 now exist in rudimentary form, but, due to the inadequacy of run time environments and the lack of validated compilers, these tools are inadequate for duplicating JAMPS software at this time. However, the tools are expected to improve sufficiently that reimplementation in Ada might reasonably begin in FY85. Cost estimates result in a $4.5M pricetag; manpower estimates and schedules are also included. (Author)
