Aonix Shatters Ada Price Barrier for Linux

Eclipse-based ObjectAda for Linux Available with No-Cost Licensing

Jan 31, 2007 - 17:50 PM

In conforming ObjectAda for Linux to the new Aonix service-pack model, Aonix has chosen to extend the zero-cost licensing of its best-selling PERC product line used by real-time Java developers to Aonix Ada developers working on the Linux platform. ObjectAda for Linux provides a robust development environment that includes a fully validated optimizing compiler, library manager, runtime, configuration management integrations, life-cycle tools, and a productivity toolset that includes an editor, browser, and debugger. Both a traditional Aonix IDE and the AonixADT plug-in set for Eclipse are provided. With this new pricing, Linux developers are able to choose a service-pack or a traditional user-based model.

“Aonix is committed to delivery of products to our customers in a way that fits the operational mode of the development community,” said Dave Wood, Aonix VP Marketing. “Linux developers are accustomed to service packs, a pricing model that we have successfully used with our PERC product line. Notably, this pricing approach makes commercial-grade Ada available to the wider Linux audience, much in the same way that our groundbreaking ObjectAda for Windows did for the Windows community.”

Since Aonix launched it in 1996 with a Visual C++ style IDE and pricing far below any previously seen for commercial Ada products, ObjectAda for Windows has been by far the top-selling Ada environment. Its installed base now includes many tens of thousands of units. The AonixADT Eclipse environment and service-pack pricing extend similar benefits to the Linux community.

AonixADT incorporates Ada-project awareness, an Ada-language sensitive editor, Ada-language compile and build capabilities, and a complete Ada debugger interface, enabling Ada developers to enjoy state-of-the-art interface capabilities geared to maximize developer ease and efficiency. Developers can focus on building applications, not on integrating tools since AonixADT also retains a large set of existing plug-ins for third-party tools, including support for source-code configuration management.
