Yes.. I believe Ada can be OO.. maybe I should clarify my position. I was
tasked to come up with some design diagrams for some legacy code that is
not entirely OO. It is quite modular and short of just using some package
diagrams to show who with who... I'm wondering if I can come up with
something more useful...

Please pardon my ignorance if this seems trivial... thanks!

First, Ada95 is fully OO.  If you don't think so, would you be so kind as
tell us which OO feature is missing from the language?

Second, there us a nuce UML design tool which generates Ada95 source
code, available from

The tool is called UML Studio, runs on Windows, and also generates
C++, IDL and Java source code.
