ACTF Javaco is a collection of Eclipse plugins that allow Java Swing and Eclipse SWT developers to perform accessibility compliance validations of either the applications they are developing or fully deployed aplications. Javaco uses aspect-oriented programming (AOP) and the Java Reflection API to perform dynamic, non-invasive, and fully configurable validations of your Java applications. The componentry comes packaged with validation documents for assessing accessibility compliance against the IBM Java Accessibility Checklist for Java Swing applications and the IBM Software Accessibility Checklist for Eclipse SWT-based applications. Documentation is available in the standard Eclipse help system.
Javaco releases come in two flavors, runtime and SDK releases. Runtime releases provide all of the functionality to enable Java developers to perform dynamic validations and accessibility compliance evaluations from within the JDT. SDK builds provide all source code and an API reference for those wishing to expand the functionality of Javaco or build their own rulebases or customize the validation engine.
The best way to get started with Javaco is to read the provided documentation, accessed from within the help system. There are several tasks to review in order to familiarize yourself with the components. Once becoming familiar with basic tasks, you can refer to more detailed sections of the documentation.
