Domestic standards for data broadcasting differ in the fact that satellite broadcasting chose MHP, cable OCAP, satellite ACAP, therefore making reuse of data contents impossible due to the differences. To resolve this problem, this study designed and implemented independent middleware class library for developing data broadcasting contents. To define class library which could bridge between applications and different middleware, standard library developing methods were used; and analysis of procedural application of each middleware was carried out. Based upon the analysis, classes with embedded transform and handle modules were defined to be linked to libraries of each middleware; and to verify the implemented class library, test contents were created to be compared to the existing contents. This kind of contents development by independent middleware class library allows for reuse of data contents easier, and develops an environment for higher quality of contents by reducing the efforts needed to learn each middleware for the developers.
