This paper describes a concept and implementation of the web-based environment for providing access over the Internet to existing stand-alone digital electronics test tools. On the user side only ordinary web browser is sufficient. The environment is built according to the client- server three-tier concept using HTML, Java applets/servlets and MySQL as database backend for user tracking and management tasks. In this paper we discuss integration of two software systems into web- based environment. The paper presents the workflows that can be executed over the Internet and gives the experimental results for estimating the efficiency of the hierarchical ATPG.
