Abstract : This document describes an implementation of the Ada language which allows applications to be - distributed across several processors and chassis, while allowing the application designer to remain within the definition of the language. Application designers use a design method which incorporates - restrictions compatible with execution in a distributed target environment. Full rendezvous semantics are supported, including user-defined parameter types and exception propagation. Significant to the effort is the fact that a standard, commercial compilation system was used without modification. Similarly, a standard commercial runtime system was used and augmented to support distributed execution. All code is written in the Ada language itself, including the runtime extensions and the host-based tools.
