Configuration Management with the ADA Language System

  • Richard M. Thall


Characteristics of large software projects and five basic configuration management capabilities are identified. The design of the Ada Language System (ALS) is then described in terms of these basic capabilities. The ALS is a computer programming support environment for Ada.
