This book presents the proceedings of the Distributed Ada '89 Symposium held at the University of Southampton in December. The objective of the symposium was to provide a platform for developers and users with experience in the areas of distributed and parallel environments to reveal the advantages and difficulties encountered. The impact of Ada-9X and other enhancements to the language were also explored.
