A framework for automatic graphical user interface code generation is developed. Tools to support this framework are built: a parser, generation rules, and target code production. The parser reads specifications resulted from a reverse engineering process of a character-oriented user interface. These specifications are written in a language called AUIDL (Abstract User Interface Description Language). This language is based on the object-oriented paradigm, which means the use of class, object, attributes and methods. The methods are used to describe the behaviour of the user interface. The resulted graphical user interface is translated into a language called EASEL, which is also an object-oriented graphical language that allows an IBM/PC to communicate with an IBM mainframe via a 3270 terminal emulator. Directions for further research are also presented
