Abstract (en)

[origin: GB2471484A] Development tool 59 provides a development environment for creating a new multimedia software component 92 which complies with an existing multimedia application programming interface (API), such as the OpenMAX Interface Layer (IL) API. A software framework of development tool 59 comprises software modules 78, 80, 82, 84, 86, 88, 90 which are configured, by user input 70, to define at least one function of new component 92. The function includes at least part of the complete functionality necessary for the new component to comply with the existing multimedia API. After configuration, development tool 59 generates code based on the configured modules to provide new software component 92 in compliance with the existing multimedia API. Each configured module represents a specified portion of the software code relating to new component 92. A user may input additional code 90 to further define the new component. The modules may include finite state machine module 78, port manager module 80 and callback manager module 88.The invention allows code for OpenMAX IL API compliant components to be reused, avoiding writing each new component from scratch, and reduces the time taken to create new OpenMAX IL components.
