Point of interest on this topic.

We are also seeing more Ada 95 mentioned in textbooks.  For example,
Roger Pressman's Fourth Edition of

   Software Engineering, A Practiioner's Approach      page 638

includes the following,

  " There have been well over 100 books written on C++ programming,
    dozens dedicated to Smalltalk, a growing number dedicated to Ada95,
    and many books dedicated to less widely used OO languages."

On page 16 he says,

  "More modern languages such as Ada95, C, C++, Eiffel, Java, and
   Smalltalk have each gained an enthusiastic following."

BTW, Pressman's book keeps getting better and better with each new
edition.  Although it is a little pricey, it is worthwhile for the
depth and breadth in its treatment of software engineering.
