    I am quite competent at UML and as well with ADA. I can state with
conviction that UML maps to ADA quite well. However we cannot expect a magic
tool where we draw a class diagram and expect it to write ADA packages and
ADA code. If one is good at UML the chances of designing a very good model
for ADA will increase.
