While most firms' descriptive intros are generally filled with lightweight adjective-heavy padding, Atego is comparatively specific describing itself as a company specializing in industrial-grade collaborative development tools for engineering complex mission- and safety-critical architectures, systems, software, and hardware.
The news here is the fact that Atego ApexAda Developer 5.0 is a major new release with complete support for the language features in Ada 2005. It passes all available Ada Conformity Assessment Test Suite (ACATS) tests applicable for native code compilation and execution.
The Atego ApexAda Developer product provides a complete solution for editing, compiling, debugging, testing, managing, and executing complex Ada applications on UNIX and Linux-based operating systems.
In addition to traditional compilation features, Atego ApexAda Developer incorporates an architectural and build control mechanism, configuration management, and version control (CMVC) capabilities to help development teams keep control of their updates and manage changes to their application code.
Atego VP of product marketing Hedley Apperly explains that Atego TestMate is also included to provide automation of the testing process, including regression testing and coverage analysis. In addition to being an integration and system-testing tool to help automate the software-testing process, Atego TestMate also allows developers to compose test cases into test suites that can be executed and evaluated automatically.
For projects requiring support of the X-Windows System's network display services and the OSF/Motif graphical user interface (GUI), Atego provides AXI bindings for Atego ApexAda Developer 5.0 as an add-on product. AXI gives Ada programmers access to more than 2,000 functions and types in the X library, extensions and utilities, the Xt toolkit, and the Motif widget set and resource manager.
