Abstract : This report summarizes the Ada compiler validation issues that had a bearing on policy changes incorporated in a revision of the Ada Compiler Validation procedures produced by the Institute for Defense Analyses, and published by the Ada Joint Program Office (AJPO) in August 1992. These policy changes include: (1) a time-limited (one year) provisional validation status for a compiler vendor who fails a small number (ten or fewer) conformity tests; (2) declaring that version 1.11 is the last version of the conformity test suite for the Ada 83 version of the language; and (3) providing guidelines for the use of an Ada compiler over the life of software development projects. This document also summarizes the nine test disputes resolved during FY92.
