Ada is really an unfortunate Lady. After years fighting against C/C++ villains, her major lift-up (Ada 95) had brought up a promise of fortune. However, a new strong villain (Java) has appeared trying to end her struggle for approval. Ada has now to fight with its own weapons. She will only succeed by her own merit. But the question is, do they exist? Are they fitted to Real-Time Systems? We think that they do exist, and that they are more than suitable to Real-Time Systems programming.
