Summary

Ada is a structured, statically typed, imperative, wide-spectrum, and object-oriented high-level computer programming language. It has strong built-in language support for explicit concurrency, offering tasks, synchronous message passing (via guarded task entries), protected objects (a monitor-like construct with additional guards as in conditional critical regions) and nondeterminism (via select statements).
