WADE: Simplified GUI Add-on Development for Third-party Software

Abstract :

We present the WADE Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which simplifies the modification of the interface and functionality of existing third-party software without access to source code. WADE clones the Graphical User Interface (GUI) of a host program through dynamic-link library (DLL) injection in order to enable (1) WYSIWYG modification of the GUI and (2) the modification of software functionality. We compare WADE with an alternative state-of-the-art runtime toolkit overloading approach in a user-study, finding that WADE significantly simplifies the task of GUI-based add-on development.
