Here's an accumulation of the replies that I got to a similar question last week about Ada95 & DBMS's.

Take Care,
Ed

Try Ada SAGE from INEL...   The Ada HOME PAGE should have
info on their product.....  I used SAGE for about 5 years
and the libraries were done 95% in Ada and 5% in C...

 Hi Ed
On the OII project (Operations/Intelligence Integration), we created a
2-layer binding to Oracle Call Interface (OCI). First we made a thin
binding to the C binding provided, using c2ada (aka cbfe) and then
created a 2nd thicker layer on top of that which we actually program to.
It's about the same level of abstraction as JDBC. This is for Ada95/GNAT
on Solaris 2.5.

I'm making a wild guess that you include this sort of thing when you say
"DBMS package".

AdaSAGE is written in Ada and has been compiled with the Aonix and GNAT Ada
95 compilers. As a member of the Engineering & Management Group, I have
been pushing Lockheed-Martin INEL to transform AdaSAGE into the equivalent
of a persistent object annex. Presently, the database is constructed with a
special tool, Thor, and the data is retrieved by passing the information in
the form of strings. I have suggested that a persistent object tagged type
be created and all of the code be created in an Ada environment. Then,
after compilation,I want to use ASIS to send the information back to Thor
to define the tables, etc.

AdaSAGE has the potential to become an object database while retaining all
of its relational capabilities. It runs 10 times faster than Oracle. I also
suggested a spreadsheet format. In short, I want to create a  killer
commercial Ada application. Another Lockheed-Martin laboratory has created
an object database. The two sets of software should be merged.

I'd be careful about Ada-SAGE and Linux...

I have an ODBC binding that you might be interested in.  ODBC is certainly
not a DBMS, but with it you can access any database you have an ODBC driver
for.  This would be primarily for a win32 or unix/x-windows environment
though.

:> 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.

I doubt they've stepped up to Ada 95, but AdaSAGE from the INEL (I
believe thats for Idaho National Engineering Laboratory) is a complete
DBMS toolbox that lots of folks have used.  I'm not sure exactly where
you will find it.  I'd try looking around Adahome.

There is a binding for "Paradox Engine" (Borland's C/Pascal DBMS) at

  <URL:http://sw-eng.falls-church.va.us/AdaIC/tools/bindings/paradox/>

This is of cause only of use on the platforms, where the Paradox Engine is
availiable (M$ OS'es).

Greetings,

Jacob

Mike Frame, recently of IDA, wrote one called "Corot." I think it's
in the PAL. As I recall, AdaIC was distributing it. It might even
be on the CD.

Also, what about Ada-SAGE? That's a DBMS (among other things!).
