I never believed in be kind to Java or C++. However, the best way to show
Ada is to demonstrate interoperability. The Aonix-AverStar and ACT
compilers can be demonstrated to run the same source text and perhaps also
the native compilers.

I think a winning approach would be to go easy on the Ada Advocacy and
heavy on the Product Advocacy. If two successive columns take opposite
positions regarding which is the best Ada implementation for the JVM
it would make people think about which they favored, or what the question
was, and turn the Ada "sell" into a stealth "soft sell".
