Abstract : This paper examines key language concerns regarding Ada Design Languages (DL's) in regard to: life cycle applicability; the information expressed by an Ada DL; relationship of an Ada DL to the Ada language; extensions of the Ada language through structured commentary and annotation; and the relationship between methodology and Ada Design Language. An assessment is made of the relative maturity of Ada DL's and of the obstacles to successful development of an Ada DL standard. (Author)
