Abstract : This Validation Summary Report summarizes the results and conclusions of validation testing performed on the VAX Ada V1.3 using Version 1.8 of the *Ada Compiler Validation Capability (ACVC). The validation process includes submitting a suite of standardized tests (the ACVC) as inputs to an Ada compiler and evaluating the results. The purpose is to ensure conformance of the computer to ANSI/MIL-STD-1815A Ada by testing that it properly implements legal language constructs and that it identifies and rejects illegal language constructs. The testing also identifies behavior that is implementation dependent but permitted by ANSI/MIL-STD-1815A. Six classes of tests are used. These tests are designed dto perform checks at compile time, at link time, or during execution. On-site testing was performed 3 Nov 1986 through 7 Nov 1986 at Nashua, NH under the auspices of the Federal Software Management Support Center, according to Ada Validation Organization policies and procedures.
