Hi all,

In my research project, I am trying to extend a Web accessibility  
validation tool called aDesigner (<http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/ 
adesigner>, written in Java and open sourced in Eclipse, <http:// 
www.eclipse.org/actf>) to also validate pages against mobileOK.  
However, when I try to use the jar file available here <http:// 
dev.w3.org/cvsweb/2007/mobileok-ref/>, I run into a lot of problems  
because there are a lot of file locations that are hard coded (e.g.,  
DTD, etc), or Tester overwrite the System properties, etc:( I  
couldn't just use this jar file and call the Tester from aDesigner to  
test some pages. I just want to reuse and integrate mobileOK  
validation rules with aDesigner. I was wondering if there is a  
possibility to have another jar file which is better suited for these  
kind of purposes to integrate mobileOK logic to other validation  
tools easily written in Java. I really appreciate if you have any  
suggestion about this.

Information about aDesigner and ACTF:
The aDesigner is an Eclipse RCP application that helps designers  
ensure that their content and applications are accessible and usable  
by disabled people. aDesigner is open-sourced as part of ACTF  
(Accessibility Tools Framework) which is an Eclipse Technology  
project. aDesigner is a very stable application, however I have  
recently started to work on extending aDesigner.

Regards,
Yeliz
