Attention:

    To Members and Friends of DC SIGAda

Next Meeting:

    Thursday, 9 January 2003, 7:30 P.M. (Refreshments and
    Social at 7:00 P.M.) at the new MITRE2 Building in
    McLean, Virginia. DC SIGAda and Baltimore SIGAda will
    feature the following presentation:

Title:

    Evolving Ada Bindings and Ada APIs

Abstract:

    A workshop was held at SIGAda 2002 to address the
    management of Ada bindings and Application Program
    Interfaces (APIs). The purpose of that workshop was to
    identify a mechanism and begin to define a plan for the
    management of APIs for Ada. ISO/WG9 has requested that
    SIGAda and Ada-Europe propose such a mechanism for
    managing Ada bindings that are not covered via formal
    standards. Then ISO/WG9 can recommend these bindings
    as *defacto* standards, thus providing a process to register,
    and thus manage, bindings available to the Ada community
    without the formalism required by ISO. This workshop was
    well received at SIGAda 2002. There were many excellent
    suggestions made to improve a draft plan to manage Ada
    APIs.

    Registered APIs are either Public or Private. Public APIs
    are those where a dedicated team assumes the responsibility
    for their maintenance and evolution. Changes are controlled
    via a concensus-based process. Private APIs are those
    developed and maintained by a third party. With permission
    from the developer, these APIs are kept on the API web
    page as a convenience to the user community. In both
    cases, Useful artifacts will be provided on the API web
    page, when available. Besides compilable APIs, there will
    also be other valuable artifacts such as examples, tutorials,
    known problems, lessons learned, etc.

    A major topic of discussion at the workshop was the
    Management of both registered public and registered private
    APIs. There are many issues associated with each. It is
    proposed that a SIGAda API Working Group be responsible
    for this activity.

    The workshop was extremely well received. The
    presentation on Thursday night will provide a summary of
    the workshop. Plans are already underway to implement
    this management plan. We are initially planning to use the
    Common Gateway Interface (CGI) as a test case for the
    procedures to manage Ada APIs. There will be other
    bindings of potential near term interest as well. Besides the
    CGI Bindings, other interfaces to which we have had recent
    presentations include: Windows Graphical User Interfaces
    and Hierarchical Data Format (HDF). This presentation
    could be valuable to all users of Ada bindings. Those
    interested in getting involved are especially welcome.

Presenter:

    Clyde Roby received his Bachelor of Science in Computer
    Science from West Virginia University in 1972. He received
    his Master of Science degree in Information and Computer
    Science from Georgia Tech in 1979. He is currently a
    Research Staff Member with the Institute for Defense
    Analyses with interests in computer and network security,
    electronic commerce, and web technologies as well as
    software engineering. He has been involved with Ada for
    over two decades and with various working groups of
    SIGAda, including the Ada Bindings Working Group
    (ABWG) and the ASIS Working Group (ASISWG). He has
    been using World Wide Web technologies since the early
    1990s to communicate effectively for international
    standardization efforts.
