Abstract : This Validation Summary Report (VSR) summarizes the results and conclusions of validation testing performed on the SD VAX x Motorola M68000/10 Ada-Plus, 2A.00, using Version 1.7 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 compiler 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 behaviour that is implementation dependent but permitted by ANSI/MIL-STD-1815A. Six classes of tests are used. These tests are designed to perform checks at compile time, at link time, or during execution. On-site testing was performed 13 June 1986 through 16 June 1986 at Systems Designers, Camberley under the auspecies of the National Computing Centre (AVF), according to Ada Validation Organization (AVO) policies and procedures.
