AdaCore, a leading supplier of Ada development tools and support services, today announced the launch of Ada Web Server (AWS) for Wind River’s VxWorks Real-Time Operating System (RTOS). When used in conjunction with the GNAT Pro development environment, AWS enables developers to embed an Ada-based web server within any application, accessible through web browsers. With AWS for VxWorks, users can connect through a direct TCP/IP link to board-level applications for a variety of purposes, such as system control, configuration, and/or maintenance. The two-way interface is both lightweight and flexible.
“Embedded applications used to be fairly self-contained and autonomous. This picture is changing rapidly, and a growing number now have a connection to the Internet or at least to a company’s intranet,” said Cyrille Comar, Managing Director, AdaCore. “AWS for VxWorks provides GNAT Pro customers with a very simple and integrated way to implement a user interface to their embedded devices through regular web browsers, bringing the power of modern web technology to the traditional embedded world.”

“Wind River is pleased to see AWS support made available for the VxWorks platform,” said Chip Downing, senior director of aerospace and defense at Wind River. “AdaCore continues to add advanced capabilities for VxWorks that expand the use cases for both products.”

Key features of AWS:

* Web Parameters Module for retrieving forms or URL parameters and building an associative table for easy access
* Session Server that keeps client data from page to page
* SOAP support for developing web services and generating stubs/skeletons from a WSDL document

* Support for SOAP, SMTP, POP and LDAP protocols and the AJAX standard
* Client-side support using client API to retrieve any web page from a web page
