The Common Ada Programming Support Environment (APSE) Interface Set (CAIS)
June 1988 (vol. 14 no. 6)
pp. 742-748

The Common APSE Interface Set (CAIS) is discussed, along with its relationship to issues in the development of environments. The CAIS concepts and features are described, followed by a discussion of several ways in which the CAIS provides valuable capabilities for environment architectures and construction.
