AdaCore today announced the release of its latest Ada cross-development environment, GNAT Pro 7.2, for ARM Cortex processors running Android. This GNAT Pro product, hosted on Windows and Linux, comprises a complete Ada toolsuite for developing and maintaining Android applications using a mixture of Ada and Java. Developers can now exploit the software engineering benefits of the Ada language, while also taking advantage of the Java libraries and services provided by the Android platform. Applications can also be written solely in Ada, or in a combination of Ada and other “native” languages. Android 2.3 and later versions are supported, on Cortex A8 and above.

AdaCore today announced a new target platform for the latest version of its GNAT Pro Safety-Critical Ada Development Environment. Hosted on Windows workstations, GNAT Pro Safety-Critical V7.2 is now targeted to the LynuxWorks LynxOS-178 V2.2.2 RTOS for PowerPC, and supports both ARINC-653 APEX partitions and POSIX pthreads. GNAT Pro Safety-Critical includes the standard GNAT Pro components – the GNAT Programming Studio (GPS) and GNATbench IDEs and accompanying toolset – along with specialized tools and run-time libraries oriented towards applications that have to meet demanding software safety standards, such as DO-178B or DO-178C for avionics. With GNAT Pro Safety-Critical for LynxOS-178, developers who need to deliver high-assurance applications on this LynuxWorks RTOS now have an integrated and full-functioned toolsuite that implements all versions of the Ada language, including Ada 2012, and is backed by AdaCore’s expert support.

CodePeer 2.3 is the latest version of AdaCore’s static analysis tool for the automated review and validation of Ada source code. CodePeer assesses potential bugs before program execution to find errors efficiently and early in the development life cycle. It also performs impact and vulnerability analysis when existing code is modified, and, using control-flow, data-flow and other advanced static analysis techniques, the tool detects problems that would otherwise only be found through labor-intensive debugging.

GNATcoverage 1.2 is the latest version of AdaCore’s source and object code coverage analysis tool. GNATcoverage does not require instrumentation of the executable, and this new product release supports usage with an iSystem hardware probe generating Nexus trace data, as well as usage with Valgrind on Linux.
