This paper describes an interface definition language called ADL which extends OMG's CORBA interface definition language with formal specification constructs. In addition to ADL's use in formal documentation, ADL's primary use is for testing software. ADL can be adapted for use with most programming languages. This paper also presents an overview of a testing technology based on ADL and presents the highlights of a test-data description language (TDD) used to describe test-data.
