Given the complexity of data display specification,this process is arduous and prone to errors. Moreover, the development of a successful test environment becomes a function of the experience and domain knowledge of human programmers.This project focuses on an ontology-driven strategy based on XML that will generate translators between any data display format and our neutral format.
