If you are talking about Ada95 implemented on top of the Java platform,
then all you need are the package specs for these classes, which
you can download from both the Intermetrics and Aonix web sites.
You can use the same class files.

However, if you are talking about the same set of stuff for a compiled
version of Ada, this is a non-trivial task, though one that
we agree might be worth doing.  It would be especially good if
we could tap into the JDK "DLL" or "shared library" that is
used to support these Java classes on a particular target O/S.
