Source code, class diagrams, specification tables and execution results are often used in programming test questions. In this case, the source code, class diagram, specification table, and execution results are related. Therefore, when these are created, the contents must match. However, when correcting a part, it is easy to make mistakes such as forgetting to correct. Therefore, we try to solve it by describing the information of the test questions in the answer source code.The purpose of this research is to support the creation of programming test questions.

This section describes programming test question creation support tools.
This research targets Java language programs. First, determine the topic of the test question. Next, create an answer source code and describe the test questions and specifications in Javadoc. Finally, run the tool.
The tool automatically creates class diagrams, specification tables, and execution results from the answer source code. In addition, these contents are combined into one and output as a PDF.

The software used in this tool is Java, JavaPerser, and LaTeX. The LaTeX macros "listings" and "pgf-umlcd" were also used. JavaPerser analyzes the source code. The analysis result is converted to a class diagram in pgf-umlcd format. Javadoc class comments are converted to LaTeX-style test question text. Javadoc method comments are converted to specification tables. This tool enabled the output of programming test questions. Only the answer source code and Javadoc were modified for the test questions.
