I would like to thank all those who responded to my original
posting asking  for information and suggestions regarding the
use of Ada vs Java as an initial teaching language -- most useful.

It looks as if we will continue using Ada for all our initial
programming courses for at least another year although I expect the
issue to resurface before too long!  However the introduction of a
second year course in Java (plus the existing one in C++) may help
stem the tide.
