Abstract
"We propose to design, develop, and deploy an advanced component-based Data Display Translation Framework (DDTF) that uses an XML-based Data Display Markup Language (DDML) as the inter-lingua between vendor-specific data display languages. We will alsodevelop and deploy a Data Display Model Repository (DDMR) that catalogs, indexes, stores, and retrieves vendor-specific data display models in DDML for the purpose of model reuse. The Phase I effort resulted in a robust DDML format that successfullydemonstrated its use as a data display inter-lingua by developing a proof-of-concept translator framework that included bi-directional translators between DDML and three vendor-specific languages. The phase II project will build off the phase I results by(i) extending the DDML to support additional functional areas, (ii) developing reusable component-based DDTF that builds off and hardens the phase I implementation, (iii) developing DDMR, (iv) developing Data Display Translator Generator (DDTG) Frameworkto automatically generate translator components in order to keep up with "moving targets" or evolution of source/target vendor languages, and (v) deploying the developed technology in a focused T&E environment. Benefits include more reliable,maintainable, and scalable translators and reuse of data display models, resulting in higher quality and improved timeliness for re-creating data displays."
