Domain-Specific Visual language (DSVL) meta-tool has managed to help and assist end-user to create DSVL. With a pre-built function and numerous graphical representations to choose from, it has reduced end-user dependency for application development team. Despite that, it still lacks in term of verification and validation process, as testing is still done manually inside these meta-tools. We propose a high level visual test specification model that is embedded inside DSVL meta-tool. This will allow end-user to self validate their DSVL using model provided. 1. Introduction Recent advancement in DSVL meta-tool applications has significantly increased the number of end-user using meta-tools to create DSVL. Tools flexibility and good support from tools provider have boost end-user confidence toward to the tools. Tools like Marama [1] and Microsoft DSL [2] are two good examples for meta-tool. Marama is a set of tools built on top of Eclipse. It is an open source project that provides a set of meta-tools to specify complex diagram-based meta-models, shapes and connectors and views. Meanwhile, Microsoft DSL is an extension from Microsoft Visual Studio where you can define a modeling language and describes the user interface easily. It then will generate code from descriptions provided by end-user. If previously end-user needs to rely on application developer to create DSVL, now they can do it on their own. Meta-tool provide a specific platform for a specific task in a given problem domain. A same problem domain can contain multiple DSVL solution that fit each end-user needs. Customization on modeling tools is the main feature of DSVL meta-tools. Overall, all meta-tools provide a graphical user interface where user can specify the... ... middle of paper ... ...ogy: New Generations, 2009. ITNG '09. Sixth International Conference on. 2009. 16.
