:> Does any one know of a DBMS written in Ada 95?  How about a "DBMS" package?

Martin Marietta (now Lockheed Martin, then GE Aerospace) was trying to use
INGRES on the 5 million SLOC Seawolf Control System but no amount of tuning
with vendor's help could meet timing requirements.  So they wrote a
"Real-Time Data Manager" in-house.  Its statistics were fairly impressive.
Since the U.S. Gorvernment paid for the development, the advertisements
had in very fine print that (not the exact words) it was public domain.
   Didn't see anything about the particular RTDM I mentioned, but it does
   cite a document by one of the designers of that RTDM.  (Ref. 29 of intro)
   Mentions Ada in the intro.
