Benjamin/Cummings, 1994 - Computers - 560 pages
Grady Booch, a renowned authority in software development, and Doug Bryan combined their Ada programming and software engineering expertise for the new edition of this best-selling book. Their up-to-date introduction to Ada programming provides a foundation for using the language with software engineering and object-oriented design. Programmers will find Software Engineering with Ada, Third Edition to be a complete reference for creating large-scale Ada systems and understanding the software engineering aspects of these systems. Features of the third edition include techniques for combining object-oriented design principles and software engineering to maximize the potential of Ada; extensive examples of small-sized code that will benefit new Ada programmers; six chapters devoted to design; five new large-scale programming exercises that build upon the software engineering principles developed in the design chapters; design projects on topics such as environment monitoring, database systems, and generic tree packages; an introduction to up-to-date object-oriented design methodology; and a new appendix on the Ada 9X program.
