Abstract
XINOTECH HAS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPED TECHNOLOGY FOR A LANGUAGE-BASED, LANGUAGE-INDEPENDENT, GRAMMAR-GENERATED INTERACTIVE PROGRAMMING ENVIRONMENT. THIS TECHNOLOGY IS COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE FOR ADA, CMS-2, PDLS AND OTHER LANGUAGES. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO USE THIS TECHNOLOGY AS A FRAMEWORK TO MAXIMIZE THE REUSE OF ADA SOFTWARE. THE NEW ENVIRONMENT WILL 1) ASSIST IN THE UNDERSTANDING OF ADA PROGRAMS, 2) PROVIDE A METHODOLOGY CONDUCTIVE TO REUSE, 3) PREDICT THE REUSABILITY EFFORT, AND 4) AUTOMATE ASPECTS OF THE REORGANIZATION, MODULARIZATION AND MODIFICATION OF ADA SOFTWARE. (1) WILL PRODUCE THE GRAPH ANALYZER TO DISPLAY ADA OBJECT RELATIONSHIPS, A DICTIONARY AND LIBRARY BROWSER FOR FAST CROSS-REFERENCING AND RETRIEVAL, AN OUTLINER FOR GENERATING CUSTOMIZED OUTLINES, AND AN ADA DOCUMENTATION ABSTRACTOR. (3) WILL PRODUCE THE GUIDELINE AND MATRICS ANALYZER TO PREDICT REUSABILITY AND AUTOMATE CONVERSION OF ADA SOFTWARE TO STANDARDS. (4) WILL PRODUCE THE GLOBAL RESTRUCTURER TO "SPLIT OFF" COMPONENTS FROM EXISTING SYSTEMS, THE LOCAL RESTRUCTURER TO INCREASE READABILITY AND MAINTAINABILITY, AND THE LIBRARY REUSE ADAPTER, TO AUTOMATE THE PORTING OF EXISTING SYSTEMS ACROSS DIFFERENT SUPPORT LIBRARIES. THESE TOOLS WILL BE OPEN SYSTEMS WITH IMMEDIATE COMMERCIAL AVAILABILITY. (2) WILL COMBINE THESE TOOLS WITH OTHERS TO PRODUCE MULTI-PLATFORM APSE'S SUPPORTING THE LEADING METHODOLOGIES.
