ABSTRACT

ASSET_A_158:  ARPS (Ada Report Production System) Source Code
     The Ada Report Production System (ARPS) provides the ability to
specify and automatically generate reports from a relational database.
Reports are created, maintained, and edited using an interactive report
specification tool which provides for selection and specification of
standard report formatting features and for database extraction using
the Ada/SQL RDBMS  interface. The report specification developed using
this interactive tool  is an Ada specification which defines, in Ada
syntax, the format and contents  of the desired report. The Ada report
specification is processed by the ARPS code generator to produce Ada
source code (packages) implementing the report  formats and providing
procedure calls and interfaces to the Ada/SQL for  eventual report
production. ARPS uses the X Window system and runs on a  SUN 3/60 on
UNIX.
