The overall objective of the IBM AD/Cycle architecture is to
enable significant improvements in the productivity, quality, and
manageability of the application development process.
The IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog family makes important
contributions to support this overall AD/Cycle objective:
o When a programmer uses Prolog he or she develops a logically
consistent description of the problem. When Prolog executes the
application it implicitly controls the logical path to the
solution. This should lead to more efficient algorithms.
o Prolog is designed to be very productive, as it provides
interactive programming, a fast interpreter, and a full set of
built-in functions, particularly for developing large and complex
o IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog is also designed to enable application
developers to rapidly create prototypes. An initial prototype
provides the basic structure of the final operational
o The Prolog development features provide a unique application
development environment which combines object-oriented
programming facilities with logic programming.
o Prolog participates in the AD/Cycle Code Development and Rapid
The IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog product family consists of IBM SAA
AD/Cycle Prolog/MVS & VM Version 1 and IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog/2
IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog is a high-level, high-productivity
programming language based on mathematical logic. Its Extension
Features provide object-oriented programming facilities which act as
Prolog compiled code when the application is executed. The
combination of logic programming and object programming facilities
provides a very powerful application development productivity tool.
Full compatibility exists between the OS/2 and the host
environments. Applications developed in the OS/2 environment can be
easily ported to the System/370 (TM) environment. In MVS, execution
under TSO, CICS, and IMS is supported.
The Prolog language has almost twenty years of background and a solid
theoretical foundation. There are many examples of efficient
business tools and operational applications based on Prolog. Many
classes of programmer should consider using IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog
today to address their computer application problems for the
o Prolog is designed to increase application development
See the User Productivity section of this announcement.
o IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog is supported by today's hardware
The processing power and memory capacity of current and
future IBM workstations are designed to provide very good
response times to the end user of large and advanced interactive
applications developed using IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog/2.
o Using IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog provides a convenient way of
developing application development tools and generic
applications. For this reason it is particularly attractive to
- With IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog it is easy to define and
generate a "natural language" syntax for creating
user-friendly front ends.
- Thanks to its natural affinity with the entity relationship
concept it is easy to develop and integrate an
object-oriented programming facility into a development tool
or into a generic application.
o Extended interfaces in IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog/2 are designed to
provide easy access to other programming languages such as REXX,
C, and Assembler.
o Prolog is used in conjunction with the AD/Cycle Integration
Scenarios to produce computer applications.
Prolog's use in these scenarios will be described in the
Integration Scenarios guide, IBM SAA AD/CYCLE: A GUIDE TO
INTEGRATION SCENARIOS (GC34-4358).
o Relational database support is provided in a way which makes the
design of relational database applications very straightforward
and close to the application programmer's normal thought process.
In addition IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog/2 offers integrated
facilities for accessing the Data Base Manager of OS/2.
o There are many ways of deploying applications developed using IBM
SAA AD/Cycle Prolog/2. The execution of an application developed
in the OS/2 environment may take place in several hardware and
- On a PS/2 (R) stand-alone system
- On a PS/2 local area network (LAN) system with or without a
- On a host with nonprogrammable workstations supported by
VM/CMS, MVS/TSO, MVS/CICS, or MVS/IMS. This makes IBM Prolog
eminently suitable for customers with large networks
supported by CICS or IMS.
- On a host with PS workstations with a Prolog distributed
application and with a host DB2 (R) database or with a
distributed relational database. Such an application may be
combined with host MVS/TSO batch applications developed using
IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog as well.
POWERFUL LANGUAGE: There can be significant improvements in
productivity from the clarity and the expression power of the
higher-level code, which can be concise and from 5 to 10 times
smaller than code developed with normal procedural languages.
When using Prolog the programmer does not need to declare
variables or to keep track of and free storage, and does not need to
code either the search or the backtracking process. The Prolog
language is not just a higher-level language; it enables a different
way of expressing the computer problem and of executing the solution.
Nevertheless, the Prolog language is efficient in use because the
programmer can still, by choice, control the execution flow.
OBJECT-ORIENTED FACILITIES: The Extension Features of IBM SAA
AD/Cycle Prolog/2 offer the programmer access to general-purpose
object-oriented programming facilities. These support object
attributes, inheritances, demons, methods, and message passing. They
are supported by a specific development environment including an
integrated, interactive debugger. Prolog code can be treated as an
object. By using the Development Facility Extension Feature the
programmer benefits from a convenient way of describing complex
INTERPRETER AND INCREMENTAL AND FULL COMPILERS: An edit/test/edit
cycle which can be as short as a few seconds is provided via an
integrated interpreter together with the ability to modify and
replace programs while they remain in execution within their own
environment. This prevents repeating start-up and initialization
processes and encourages on-the-spot design improvements, which can
speed development and enhance productivity. Production applications
can be produced by requesting compilation, while interpreted and
compiled code can be mixed and remixed at will. This speeds the
process of turning a design prototype into a production application.
DATA TYPE HANDLING: A large number of data types are built in and
checking is under user control. Users may extend the built-in types
and define their own types. This can enhance productivity by
allowing compact references to complex structures that are
CUSTOMIZABLE AND TAILORABLE SYNTAXES: Two syntaxes are provided by
IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog: the IBM Syntax and the Edinburgh Syntax.
Users can change these and define their own syntaxes for personal
convenience, or when it is particularly suited to an application.
COMPREHENSIVE SET OF BUILT-IN PREDICATES OR SUBROUTINES, EXPRESSIONS,
AND FUNCTIONS: IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog/2 includes a comprehensive
set of built-in predicates and expressions designed to further enable
efficient application creation. Examples include input/output
predicates, external interface predicates, and arithmetical, logical,
and relational operators. Presentation Manager (R) objects such as
windows, controls, messages, and interrupts are provided. There are
more than 500 built-ins in IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog.
HIGH-LEVEL INTERFACE TO PRESENTATION MANAGER (PM): A compact
high-level interface to PM windows and controls can be used to create
graphic panels and windows.
With the Prolog Development Facility Extension Feature the
programmer has the additional capability of treating graphical
objects as true application objects, with all the object-oriented
programming facilities available to them.
PROLOG TERM HANDLING: Complex data or Prolog terms can be easily
stored in memory and retrieved by powerful search facilities just as
if they were part of an external database, but more quickly and more
conveniently. More complex data types are supported.
SOURCE-LEVEL DEBUGGER: The IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog/2 interactive
debugger provides many advanced debugging functions designed to
enhance user productivity. The user may follow the execution of a
program in the source code to quickly and effectively identify and
correct errors. The debugger provides multiple Presentation Manager
windows and an interface to external source code editors.
The Development Facility Extension Feature provides a specific
debugger facility that allows the definition of a general trace of
operations on objects and object attributes.
COHERENT DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT WITHIN THE AD/CYCLE FRAMEWORK: The
IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog development environment encourages
productivity by providing a consistent means of expressing all the
phases of application development in IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog. It is
coherent within the AD/Cycle framework, using the AD/Cycle
Workstation Platform (WSP) and conforming to SAA Common User Access
(TM) (CUA (TM)) 89 plus the AD/Cycle supplements.
KNOWLEDGE SUBSET FACILITY: This facility allows the performance of
many types of operation on the knowledge subset or an aggregate of
elementary information. It enables simultaneous development by
multiple users, object swapping, reuse of existing code, and session
REFERENCE INFORMATION AVAILABLE THROUGH ONLINE INFORMATION PANELS:
IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog/2 provides the developer with online
reference information by making it accessible through BookManager (R)
READ/2. Users can quickly find material through search and hypertext
references and online examples.
FAST PROTOTYPING AND PROGRESSIVE DEVELOPMENT: All the above
facilities highlight how fast and easy prototyping is with IBM SAA
AD/Cycle Prolog. But what is really important is that with IBM SAA
AD/Cycle Prolog a quickly written top-down prototype may be further
developed and turned into the final production application. No
recoding is necessary. They also highlight the fact that large and
complex applications may be developed "tops down."
IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog is intended to support growth of the
customer's business and to provide for fast response to customer and
business requirements. It is designed without growth-inhibiting
limits on the data and data structures that it supports and provides
interfaces to other languages.
32-BIT MODE: Applications run in 32-bit mode under OS/2.
The individual data items in all environments may each reach
16 megabytes (MB).
SYSTEM INTEGRATION AND INTERLANGUAGE COMMUNICATION: Prolog provides
system integration and interlanguage communication capabilities.
IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog is structured to integrate well with
other existing systems and applications. IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog has
interfaces to other high-level programming languages, command
languages, IBM system editors, and databases.
PROLOG/2 AD/CYCLE LEVEL 2 INTEGRATION:
o Prolog/2 is used in the AD/Cycle Code Development and Rapid
o Prolog/2 supports the CUA 89 graphical model plus the AD/Cycle
o Prolog/2 enables functions:
- Prolog/2 can be installed using the IBM SAA AD/Cycle WSP
- Prolog/2 can be invoked from the AD/Cycle Window at the
- Prolog/2 utilizes the WSP library application program
interfaces (APIs) for storage of application source data.
- Prolog/2 provides online help using OS/2 IPF.
PROLOG EFFICIENCY IN APPLICATION MAINTENANCE: One of the greatest
difficulties in maintaining applications written in conventional
procedural languages arises from the fact that the application code
reflects the computer solution developed for the problem being
addressed. When the problem definition changes, the programmer in
charge of maintenance has to establish the correct relationship
between the problem change and the code changes to apply to the
computer solution. In applications written in Prolog, with the code
expressing the problem rather than the computer solution, it should
be easier to apply any requested change.
OS/2 VERSION 2.0 AND OS/2 VERSION 1.3 SUPPORT: IBM SAA AD/Cycle
Prolog/2 is designed to require only a minimal migration effort to
move an application developed under IBM Prolog/2 running under OS/2
Version 1.3 to IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog/2 running under OS/2
IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog facilitates the information system manager's
job, with particular emphasis on the areas of installability,
maintainability, availability, and reliability.
IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog is installed under OS/2 by using the
AD/Cycle common installation and maintenance utility.
IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog contains interrupt handling,
user-defined error conditions, and recovery techniques. A Prolog
application can trap error numbers or a list of error parameters. In
addition, IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog provides predicates that will
override system behavior in response to errors.
SYSTEMS APPLICATION ARCHITECTURE (R) (SAA)
IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog is an SAA application family implementing the
Prolog language. IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog conforms to the CUA
guidelines and to the AD/Cycle supplement. It runs in a PS/2 under
OS/2 and on a System/370 under VM, CMS, MVS, TSO, CICS, and IMS. In
addition, IBM SAA AD/Cycle Prolog supports the use of the following
SAA Language Common Program Interfaces (CPIs): C (OS/2, MVS, and VM),
Procedures Language (OS/2, MVS, and VM), and COBOL (MVS and VM). IBM
SAA AD/Cycle Prolog supports the SAA CPI Services of Presentation
(OS/2) and Data Base (OS/2, MVS, and VM).
AD/Cycle Prolog is a full, logic-based programming language utilizing
AD/Cycle Prolog addresses a specific class of programmers:
those who are more highly skilled in conceptual and abstract
reasoning, usually college graduates in Computer Science.
Programming in Prolog is different from using a conventional,
procedural programming language. The programmer concentrates on the
logical expression of the problem rather than on the way the computer
has to execute the solution to the problem.
Prolog programming is also different from the standard
knowledge-based system (KBS) shell or tool approach, where the
problem is expressed in terms of rules and frames. In Prolog the
programmer has to manage the top-down logical structure of the
problem, whereas using standard KBS tools the programmer has to
manage the consistency of the knowledge expressed by the rules and
This leads to a clear differentiation between the three
approaches, and between the prerequisite skills and class of problem
best suited to each of them.
Prolog will be the first choice when the problem has a complex
logic content and when the application developer concerned has the
necessary Prolog skills. Because of the nature of these skills, and
the complexity of the problems that they address, Prolog programmers
prefer to work in their own language syntax and semantic environment.
Because AD/Cycle Prolog supports the natural-language type of
syntax extremely well, and offers good object-orientation facilities,
it is particularly suitable for developing software engineering
tools, application solutions, and conventional management information
system applications. This design should make it easier to
incorporate user-friendly end-user interfaces into applications.
Because of its logical base and advanced inferencing
technology, AD/Cycle Prolog will also become the natural choice for
developing complex artificial intelligence applications.
