ABSTRACT

        The Graphic Ada Designer is a specialized  tool  for  creating
graphical Object Oriented Design Diagrams (OODDs) for Ada programs and
the Program Design Language (PDL) representations associated with each
OODD.   The  Graphic  Ada Designer is principally targeted towards the
interactive development of these block-like diagrams in support of the
development  of Ada software.  In particular it is designed to support
a variant of the Ada Graphic Notation developed  by  SYSCON  from  the
Object  Oriented  Design  work  of  Grady  Booch and a presentation on
graphical techniques for analysis given by Dr.  R.  Buhr  of  Carleton
University  (see  "Software  Engineering with Ada" by Grady Booch, and
"System Design with Ada" by R.J.A.  Buhr).

        The  Graphic  Ada  Designer  requires  a  bit-mapped  graphics
terminal supporting at least a minimal display list  capability.   The
implementation  will  use  GKS  interfaces when possible.  Significant
emphasis will be placed on the transportability  of  the  applications
software,  with  execution  efficiency being a secondary consideration
(i.e., when due to its device and system dependent nature).
