Atlas, the Ada Web Application demonstrator

By stephane.carrez

AWA is a framework to build web applications on top of various robust components.

  • AWA uses Ada Server Faces for the web framework. This framework is using several patterns from the Java world such as Java Server Faces and Java Servlets.
  • AWA is architectured arround modules and plugins that allow to build, re-use and extend modules made of Ada code, Web pages or Javascript.
  • AWA provides a set of ready to use and extendable plugins that are common to many web application. This includes managing the login, authentication, users, permissions, a mail plugin, a blog plugin, a Javascript light editor.
  • AWA uses an Object Relational Mapping that helps in writing Ada applications on top of MySQL or SQLite databases. The ADO framework allows to map database objects into Ada records and access them easily.
  • AWA integrates a configurable event service which allows plugins to easily interact and connect with each other (either synchronously or asynchronously). The event service provided by AWA is heavily inspired from the Java Message Service.

To learn more on how to create easily a web application using AWA, look at the 4 minutes video.

The Atlas Web Application Demonstrator is a demonstration of an application using this AWA framework.
