Abstract design and program translator: New tools for software design

by J. L. Archibald, B. M. Leavenworth, L. R. Power
Abstract Design And Program Translator (ADAPT) is an integrated set of tools and approaches for the design and development of software systems. Together they include a module specification language and a system design language for specifying module interfaces and interconnections. This paper explains some of their major features and illustrates their use in the design of some examples-.a set of reusable software components and a generalized editor system. Benefits of the ADAPT approach are discussed, emphasizing executable design and modifiability.
