CORSO, a coordination system for virtual shared memory, allows bindings to different programming languages. Currently C, C++, Java, VisualBasic, and Oracle’s Developer2000 are supported. We implement an Ada binding to CORSO, thus opening the area of virtual shared memory to the Ada world. Our Ada CORSO binding enhances Ada with transaction-oriented, fault-tolerant, distributed objects in a straight-forward way without having to extend the Ada language.
