ABSTRACT

ASSET_A_235:  Ada Composer:  Ada Design Tool Using OOD
     A graphical design tool that supports the interactive creation of
Object Oriented Design Diagrams (OODDs) and translates the OODDs into
compilable Ada Program Design Language (PDL).  The generated PDL serves
as a compilable  top-level design document that may be further refined
into a detailed design  and then into the final source code. Composer
supports the reuse of existing software components by using a Source To
Graph Converter (STGC) that translates existing Ada reusable components
into graphical representations that may be included in OODDs.   Reusable
component source code may be automatically  inserted into the PDL at the
user's request.  By including reusable component  source, the PDL is
closer to the final product, thus decreasing software  development time.
