This paper discusses the development of a distributed asynchronous atomic action scheme for Ada 95. The scheme makes use of many unique Ada 95 features including protected objects, asynchronous transfer of control and the distributed systems annex. We present the packages which implement the local and global action support and illustrate their use in a (partial) implementation of the FZI production cell problem. We also discuss a number of variations of the model and how these might be included. Finally, we discuss how the distribution model used in Ada 95 has influenced our design.
