Aonix Rolls Out Beta Release of AonixADT Eclipse-based IDE for ADA

7/28/2004 - Aonix®, an independent global company delivering complete solutions for safety- and mission-critical applications, is pleased to announce the Beta release of AonixADT -- an Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for the Ada language. Because Eclipse offers a common platform for which many companies have developed plug-ins, Aonix has extended the wealth of interoperable technologies and tool flexibility available to Ada developers by ensuring that AonixADT (Ada Development Toolkit) builds on such a universal platform.

In the mission- and safety-critical market, developers come from a number of industry sectors, each carrying its own certification standards and specialized tools. By delivering the power of the standard Eclipse IDE with Ada programming language awareness, Aonix provides developers with built-in support for the project manager, editor, difference capability, compile, debug, and command history. Developers can focus on building applications, not on integrating tools since AonixADT also retains a large set of existing plug-ins for third-party tools, including support for source-code configuration management.

“Aonix is committed to providing the mission- and safety-critical developer with an integrated, flexible tool chain,” noted Greg Gicca, Director of Product Marketing, Ada Products, “Notably, the release of AonixADT celebrates two first-time achievements—it’s the first Eclipse-based Ada IDE and marks the first time that Ada developers have been offered such a wealth of third-party tools already integrated through a universal platform.”

AonixADT provides Ada-project awareness, an Ada-language sensitive editor, Ada-language compile and build capabilities, along with a complete Ada debugger interface. ADT project awareness allows full library hierarchy manipulation and Ada program units can be conveniently inserted or removed from Ada projects. The language-sensitive editor provides complete language awareness with syntax color coding and template completion. Symbolic debugging is integrated within the Ada-language sensitive editor. The build interface offers complete access to the Aonix ObjectAda compile and build capabilities.

This first release of AonixADT supports self-hosted development for the Windows platform. Support for Solaris and Linux development and cross compilation for key embedded platforms will be announced subsequently.
