Abstract

This report presents an analysis of the Rational R1000 Development System for ADA, also called the Rational Environment. The evaluation combined the use of the Software Engineering Institute methodology for evaluation of ADA environments, an analysis of functionality not covered by that methodology, and an assessment of the novel environment architecture of the Rational Environment. In addition to this report, Experiment Transcripts for the Evaluation of the Rational Environment, by Grace Downey, Mitchell Bassman, and Carl Dahlke (CMU/SEI-88-TR-021) contains support material for the experimental results. The support material is the result of performing experiments based on the SEI's environment evaluation methodology. It consists of transcripts of the experiments, the detailed answers to the evaluative questions, and the detailed performance results.
