Aonix in San Diego released its latest version of ObjectAda Windows for the PowerPC/VxWorks development environment. The ObjectAda 8.2 port brings enhanced compiler and debug technology to Wind River’s Tornado 2.x and VxWorks 5.x environments and boasts an Ada/VxWorks binding that interfaces Ada constructs with VxWorks primitives in the same application. The Windows-hosted ObjectAda 8.2 improves the underlying Aonix Ada 95 compiler, reducing compile time for the PowerPC/VxWorks platform. As well, ObjectAda 8.2 includes a capability to attach the symbolic debugger to a running Ada application, which aids VxWorks developers in resolving programming errors discovered after the test and debug phase is completed. Integration with the VxWorks environment is seamless thanks to a specifically developed VxWorks binding that enables Ada tasks and VxWorks tasks to be combined in the same application.
