What? No ADA??
RE: What? No ADA??
Ada is definitely still being used in a number of niche markets, but it isn’t popular for mainstream commercial development. But then again, Ada wasn’t designed to be C# or Java, it was designed to meet a number of requirements for DoD systems, and these requirements also align with those for heavy industry, safety-critical systems, verifiable systems, and so on, and that’s where you find Ada today.
Some factoid for those interested...
Oracle’s PL/SQL language is based on Ada, the syntax, structure the concepts of records, packages and exceptions are all taken from Ada.
There are a lot of people using PL/SQL, I think they just stay quiet because it’s so dull.
ADA? What about FORTRAN?
