The structured query language (SQL) Ada Module Extensions (SAME) form a method for the design and construction of Ada database applications. The method is explained in a companion document: "Guidelines for the Use of the SAME." In order to enable the method to be referenced in requests for proposals (RFPs) and development contracts, there must be some method to determine if a given software design and implementation conform to the SAME guidelines. Such conformance criteria are contained in this report.
