I remember earlier this year having passed on a comment made by
a Rational employee in response to my query about support for
Ada 95 in Rational Rose. To paraphrase, Rational doesn't see Ada
as a viable language, so will not be supported.

I got a fairly adamant response from Rational's Ada product
manager correcting that erroneous statement.  He said,
[paraphrasing] Rational offers Ada development tools and would
provide an Ada 95 module for Rose [full round trip engineering
would be supported for Apex Ada, code generation only would be
supported for straight Ada95].

The Rational Ada Product Manager would be the best source for
comment.  Hopefully, he will set the story straight again.
