Abstract : We have defined and implemented a programming environment for developing persistent Ada 95 applications. The mechanism for persistence is new binding to the emerging Object Data Management Group (ODMG) object-oriented database standard. In this report, we describe the binding and the rationale behind it. We also describe our implementation of the binding using the Texas Object Storage Manager as the back-end. We use the binding to develop a large persistent application, and we describe the issues that arose in that development and the performance of the resulting application.
