Research Institution
Xinotech has researched and developed a metalanguage-based, multi-lingual, interactive programming and transformation environment, commercially available for Ada, CMS-2, Modula-2 and COBOL, for CMS-2 to Ada translation, and for Ada restructuring and modernization. The language-independent architecture is supported by XML, the Xinotech Meta-Language, and XPAL, the Xinotech Pattern Abstraction Meta-Language, which is an XML component. Xinotech proposes to use its metalanguage infrastructure, more specifically XPAL transformations, to instantiate its visual environment for the fully automatic and semi-automatic translation from various FORTRAN dialects to Ada 9X. THis translation environment will also support parallel FORTRAN dialects and parallelization of resulting Ada 9X sources to meet specific architectures. Xinotech's existing Ada 9X Philosophy Transformation Library will be embedded into the translator to enhance its abstraction capabilities into the higher level Ada 9X models. The existing Xinotech Object Prospector will be instantiated to support the selection of FORTRAN candidate objects for object-orientation under Ada 9X.
