Abstract : The Ada community, including government, industry, and academic personnel, needs the capability to assess APSEs (Ada Programming Support Environments) and their components and to determine their conformance to applicable standards (e.g., DoD-STD-1838, the CAIS standard). The purpose of the APSE Evaluation and Validation (E&V) task is to provide a focal point for addressing the need by: 1) Identifying and defining specific technology requirements; 2) Developing selected elements of the required technology; 3) Encouraging others to develop some elements; and 4) Collecting information describing existing elements. The purpose of this document is to provide information that will help users to: 1) Gain an overall understanding of APSEs and approaches to their assessment; 2) Find useful reference information (e.g., definitions) about specific elements and relationships between elements; and 3) Find criteria and metrics for assessing tools and APSEs, and techniques for performing such assessment.
