What this is: This is the most comprehensive known catalog of systems, in operation or under active development, in which Ada is used at least to a significant degree.

What this is not: This is not a catalog of Ada-oriented software tools, libraries, bindings, and the like. The emphasis here is on applications designed for some end-user community, not for software developers. There are many, many Ada developer artifacts, and several excellent developer-oriented catalogs, including the Ada Information Clearinghouse, AdaPower, and (especially for open-source projects) the Ada section of SourceForge; these catalogs are all actively maintained and it is unnecessary and undesirable for me to duplicate those efforts.

The Ada community has much to gain from a comprehensive list like this; I need your help in maintaining it! Please e-mail additions or corrections to me -- including web links for the unlinked projects -- at mfeldman@gwu.edu. I respect the confidentiality of my sources. 

This page is intended for informational purposes and I hope it will be widely read. Please feel free to link to it from other WWW sites. Please do NOT put electronic copies on other sites, as this will cause horrendous maintenance problems. I try to update it as soon as possible after I receive information, so it is in everyone's interest not to proliferate out-of-date electronic copies.

While this page is intended mainly for web browsing, it is OK to make verbatim hard copies. Please keep the maintenance problem in mind and make sure to update your print copies now and then.

For web-development fans: I maintain this page on an Apple Mac Book Pro, using the Composer module of the open-source Mozilla SeaMonkey.
