Some of the fundamental issues and tradeoffs involved in the translation and execution of programs written in the Ada language and intended for distributed execution are examined. The memory access architecture, binding time and degree of system homogeneity are the three basic characteristics in terms of which target systems can be described. Library subprograms and library packages are identified as natural distributable units of the language. The program-to-process/memory mapping and the unit of the language to be distributed are the key issues in the distribution of Ada. The implications of various alternatives for these are analyzed
