Configuration frameworks are an alternative to the traditional structural and currently the most widely used object-oriented programming frameworks. These frameworks in their pure form are not yet widespread in practical use for desktop applications, despite their huge potential. They offer many advantages, such as iterative development, deployment of new modules without reinstallation on workstations, distribution of new versions without disrupting business, easy development and maintenance etc. The article depicts this innovative approach, which is especially suitable for the production of large-scale IT systems, on a specific example of an administration interface for test management. The article also shows the possibility of processing other similar systems, analogically. If such a system was based on the configuration framework, it could bring significant benefits to both its authors and users, e.g. small size of applications, low memory requirements, easy installation, uncomplicated update during runtime, the fact that even a non-expert can handle the framework maintenance etc. Creating a unique completely original framework for any specific needs is not so difficult, and due to the subsequent savings it is worthwhile in many cases.
