Answer: (This answer hasn't changed since the date given, but I needed to
break it into 2 parts.)

SERC's Ada/MOTIF is a complete binding to X Window and OSF/Motif for the Ada
programming language that was based in part upon the SAIC/Unisys (STARS)
public domain bindings.  That work was leveraged as a starting point for this
development; many of the bug fixes and additional capabilities beyond the
public domain releases in Ada/MOTIF have been incorporated.  Most noteworthy
are the capabilities included in Ada/Motif for Ada tasking, callback
registration, memory leak detection/prevention and capabilities for developing
customized widgets.  Paramax/STARS considers Ada/Motif to be the commercial
version of their STARS bindings, according to SERC.

Ada/MOTIF is supported by the ALSYS, VERDIX, SUNAda, IBM Ada, and SGI Ada
compilers.

TeleSoft                                            (Updated:  November 1992)

TeleSoft's TeleUSE/Ada automates the creation of OSF/Motif graphical user
interfaces for Ada applications.  It includes a special version of the TeleUse
User Interface Management System -- which generates Ada source code -- and Ada
bindings to the TeleUSE run-time routines.

TeleUse/Ada tools allow a GUI to be prototyped and designed using a WYSIWYG
editor and a PDL, and also includes tools for debugging, generating production
code and maintaining the GUI.  TeleUse/Ada can save the developer up to 90
percent of the time required to hand code X Window System GUIs.

TeleSoft's TeleWindows is a set of Ada bindings to the X Window System and
OSF/Motif.  This includes Xlib, XT, X extensions Library, XT+, X miscellaneous
utilities, Motif widget set, XM, MWM, Motif resource manager.  It supports X-
11 R4 and is not based on the public domain version.  It closely follows the C
Xlib syntax and allows Ada applications to co-exist with C applications.

The Verdix Ada Development System (VADS), is a complete Ada Compiler System
offering a fully validated Ada compiler with chapter 13 support.  Verdix
supplies VADSself and VADScross.   VADSself provides a complete toolset for
self-targeted applications.  It easily interfaces to databases, windowing
systems and program management tools.  VADScross provides real-time support
for host-to-target system development.  VADScross produces small and fast
object code.  VADS is hosted on the largest number of platforms and targets
the greatest number of microprocessors.
