Abstract : A primary motivation for the U.S. Department of Defense in sponsoring Ada, was to provide a common portable computer language for real-time military embedded computer systems. Ada incorporates many features and characteristics that are also appropriate for commercial, non-DoD applications. This paper will discuss some field-proven Ada business applications, ongoing commercial Ada efforts, the benefits derived from using Ada in this environment, and the potential for future commercial and business-oriented Ada applications.
