There seems to be some active consideration by a large
aerospace/defense contractor about how they transition from Ada to
other languages (e.g., C, C++). They currently maintain millions of
lines of legacy Ada code and they perceive that the supporting
infrastructure (e.g., skilled labor, tools) is dwindling.
I'm not aware of any efforts regarding Ada legacy code conversion.
Indeed, there still seems to be efforts on-going for conversion of
Jovial legacy code using automated tools.
What are your thoughts?
