Subject: Great News! ASIS to be Submitted to SC22 for CD Registration

Dear ASISWG/ASISRG,

1.  As you recall, the WG9 Ballot for ASIS closed in March 1997. We
received 90 editorial comments in response to the ballot and 57
technical comments. Those approved by ASISRG were incorporated into
ASIS Version 2.0.N and along with our Disposition of Comments were
submitted to WG9 on 2 June 1997. There were several options available
to the WG9 Convenor. The following 3 ASIS-related resolutions were
voted on by the nations present: Canada, France, Germany, Japan,
Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States:

     RESOLUTION: The disposition of comments on the ASIS Working Draft
     ballot is approved by WG9 and the Project Editor of project 15291
     is authorized to forward Version 2.0.N of the draft to the SC22
     secretariat for CD registration. [Passed: 8 Affirmative; 0
     Abstain; 0 Negative].

     RESOLUTION: WG9 authorizes Convener, in his judgment, to combine
     CD registration and CD ballot. [Passed: 8 Affirmative; 0 Abstain;
     0 Negative].

     RESOLUTION: WG9 authorizes Convener, in his judgment, to combine
     CD registration and CD ballot and Final CD ballot. [Passed: 7
     Affirmative; 0 Abstain; 1 Negative].

According to the new ISO rules, the typical ISO standardization
process looks like:

        Working Draft => Registration as Committee Draft (CD) (3 months)
        CD Ballot (3 months)
        CD Final Ballot (4 months) => Registration as DIS
        DIS Final Ballot (2 months) => Registration as IS

There is approximately 2 months between each of these stages for mailing and
miscellaneous administrative activities. The first WG9 Resolution authorizes the
submission of ASIS to SC22 for Registration as a CD. This ballot addresses scope
issues. The Ballot for CD Registration will commence shortly after the SC22
meeting scheduled for 18-22 August 1997 in Ottawa, Canada. There can be
[theoretically] an infinite number of CD Ballots, with each iteration resolving
technical issues until SC22 is happy with the document. The second WG9
Resolution authorizes the WG9 Convenor to combine the first 2 steps,
thus saving approximately 5 months in the standardization process. When ready, a
Final CD Ballot is authorized. A successful CD Final Ballot results in
registration as a Draft International Standard (DIS). The third WG9 Resolution
authorizes the submission of ASIS to SC22 for a combined CD Registration, CD
Ballot, and CD Final Ballot. Combining these steps could result in a saving of
about 10 months in the standardization process. However, the risk is that should
there be balloting problems, even for minor format details, we will not achieve
CD Registration, a very important milestone.

After a successful CD Final Ballot, there is a 2-month pass/fail ballot. DISs
passing the DIS Final ballot become International Standards (IS); those failing
are sent back to committee and must start the CD Registration process all over
again.

We should be proud, ASIS has passed its last serious technical review on its way
to becoming an International standard.

2.  A consequence of the 3 WG9 Resolutions above is ASIS version 2.0.N is now
under very strict configuration control. Technical changes can only be made
through the SC22 balloting process. For format changes needed by the ISO
secretariat, ASISRG will do that immediately.  Otherwise, no further changes can
be made to ASIS at this time. ASIS users are encouraged to submit comments to
[log in to unmask] For those having merit, we will try to
arrange appropriate comments to be included in the national ballot at the SC22
level. This mechanism will be used to better address our approach to the
Wide_String issue (I#064). ASIS Version 2.0.N is on the ASIS Home Page =>

3.  Our first ASIS 95 tool was demonstrated at the Software Technology
Conference (STC'97). The tool is ObjectMaker from Mark V Systems. Part of
ObjectMaker included a syntactic parser and a semantic analyzer to generate a
call tree. This portion of the ObjectMaker functionality took 6 1/2 man years of
effort. The parser and analyzer have now been replaced with ASIS95 calls,
updating the tool for Ada 95. The replaced functionality took approximately 1
week of effort. This is an excellent demonstration of the power that ASIS brings
to the Ada community.

4.  There will be a ASIS Panel at WAdaS'97 on Thursday, 26 June from 3:30 to
5:00 P.M. with the focus of Roll Your Own Analysis Tools. Joyce Tokar will
provide a short technical briefing on ASIS and usage to build a browser; Bill
Thomas will discuss several simple ASIS 95 examples oriented to Ada code
developers; and  Herm Fisher will discuss the use of ASIS for ObjectMaker.
Finally Joyce Tokar will provide the current status of the ASIS implementations
for Aonix, DDC-I, GNAT, and Rational. The emphasis on the panel will be on the
use of ASIS by Ada developers to create one's own tool for analysis.

5. There are a number of people who have worked very hard to get ASIS to where
it is today. We are indebted to the ASIS Working Group and ASIS Rapporteur Group
members who spent many hours evolving an ASIS for Ada 83 to an ASIS for Ada 95;
We are indebted to the work of the National reviewers who provided excellent
comments which will result in a significantly improved ASIS specification for
the Ada community. We are indebted to the many who helped resolve these issues.
These creators, reviewers, and resolvers included: Cheryl Barbasch, Gary Barnes,
John Barnes, Bill Beckwith, Roy Bell, Jim Bladen, Steve Blake, Alex Blakemore,
David Brookman, Gary Bundy, Dave Clark, Dan Cooper, John Dawes, Robert Dewar,
Bill Eastman, Bob Ekman, Dan Ehrenfried, Dan Eilers, Magnus Ericson, Arthur
Evans, Dan Fisher, Herm Fischer, Vasiliy Fofanov, Wesley Hair, Hal Hart, Peter
Hermann, Chuck Hobin, Bob Hokanson, Rick Hudson, Kiyoshi Ishihata, Jesper
Joergensen, Bjorn Kallberg, Magnus Kempe, Allan Kopp, Alain Le Guennec, Robert
Leif, Pascal Leroy, Jim Longers, Ole Oest, Stefan Landherr, Bob Mathis, Jim
Moore, Peter Obermayer, Bertrand Petitprez, Michael Pickett, Erhard Ploedereder,
Ron Price, Gil Prine, Dan Rittersdorf, Clyde Roby, Sergey Rybin, Tom Shields,
Steen Silberg, John Solomond, David Spenhoff, Doug Smith, Tom Strelich, Alfred
Strohmeier, Joyce Tokar, Bill Thomas, Kevin Tucker, Luba Vladavsky, Mickey
White, Steve Ziegler, and many others. A very, very special thanks to those who
served in key positions in making ASIS happen these folks are: [Currie Colket
(ASISWG Chair/ASISRG Chair), Steve Blake (ASISWG Vice Chair; ASISRG Co-Editor),
Clyde Roby (ASISWG Recorder; ASISRG Co-Editor), Dan Cooper (ASISWG
Vice-Recorder), Dr. Bill Thomas (ASISWG Vice Chair for Publicity/Meetings), Gary
Barnes (ASISWG Archivist), Cheryl Barbasch (Active Member), Dr. Robert Dewar
(Active member), Bob Hokanson (Active Member), Jesper Joergensen (Active
Member), Dan Rittersdorf (Active Member), Dr. Sergey Rybin (Active Member),
Steen Silberg (Active Member), Professor Alfred Strohmeier (Active Member), and
Dr. Joyce Tokar (Active Member). Several monumental efforts should be
recognized: Sergey Rybin rapidly brought ASIS for GNAT to ASIS version 2.0.M
making possible the example testing by Bill Thomas; and Clyde Roby and Steve
Blake did a fantastic job as technical editors. A very special thanks goes to
Clyde Roby who is truly a wizard at generating a large technical document and
making the World Wide Web effective for the dissemination of ASIS information
via the ASIS Home Page. His work in providing ASIS and the Resolution of
Editorial and Technical Comments on the ASIS Home Page was vital to the success
of ASIS. And yes, a special thanks goes to Dan Ehrenfried whose idea for the LRM
interfaces mushroomed into ASIS. It was a distinct pleasure of mine to work with
a highly professional and cooperative team dedicated to producing a powerful
interface to the Ada compilation environment. Thank you all for producing a
product which will benefit the entire Ada community.
