The traditional object-oriented programming frameworks are currently the most widely used method for creating large information systems. Configuration frameworks are their alternative or rather an extension, which are not yet widespread in practical use for desktop applications, despite their huge potential. This innovative method offers many advantages, such as deployment of new modules and whole versions without reinstallation on workstations and disrupting business, easy iterative development and maintenance etc. The paper presents this original approach on a concrete example of the test management administration interface and also shows possibilities of analogical processing other similar systems. Using a technology of the configuration framework for the development of a such systems could bring significant benefits to developers and to users, e.g. easy and fast installation and updates, low memory requirements, small application size, easy system maintenance without necessity of experts etc. As this article illustrates, creating of a unique completely original configuration framework for any specific needs is not so difficult, and it is worthwhile in many cases due to the subsequent savings.
