I'm not sure how relevant it is, but I'll include a part of a posting
Intermetrics is also creating a version of the AdaMagic front end that
generates "Java byte codes" compatible with Sun's Java(tm) and
HotJava(tm) Web-based programming technology (see http://www.javasoft.com/),
allowing the use of Ada 95 to create "applets" and full applications
for use in graphic-oriented, platform-independent, Web-based, client/server
For more information, contact Mike Ryer -- firstname.lastname@example.org, or check
out the Intermetrics web page (soon to have some AdaJava applets!):
Ada95 and Java have much in common, so it is quite possible that is will
be much harder to make a smalltalk version (I don't know).
