Testing is frequently reported as a crucial stage in the software development process. With traditional approaches acceptance testing is the last stage of the process before release. Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD) promotes the role of an expert customer in defining tests and uses tool support to automate and execute these tests. This paper outlines a tool, AnnoTestWeb/Run aimed at expert customers specifying acceptance tests through reuse of existing documentation. Also outlined is a planned evaluation that includes industrial collaboration aimed at considering the impact of this tool on reuse of existing documentation
