Abstract

This paper describes the TTCN-3 Data Presentation Format (DPF). DPF is an intuitive graphical notation for representing TTCN-3 Core Language (CL) [1] types and values. The major advantage of using DPF compared to free-text editing is that a DPF implementation ensures a consistent type and template structure by excluding references to unexisting entities while significantly reducing typing work. The result is a shorter test suite development time. DPF covers all excluded parts of Graphical Presentation Format (GFT) [3]. We believe that DPF and GFT together could be the basis for building the ultimate graphical representation of TTCN-3.
