   [ANN] early version of the XML Query Test Suite

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The XML Query Working Group and the XSL Working Group would like to announce the availability of an early version of the XML Query Test Suite (XQTS) at http://www.w3.org/XML/Query/test-suite/.

This version, XQTS 0.6.0, contains over 7000 test cases, about 60% of the tests that we anticipate it will have when it is finished. These test cases are based on the Last Call WD documents that were published on April 4. XQTS contains an XML catalog document that describes the source documents and schemas that may be used and it describes each of the test cases. The test queries and expected results are contained in individual files. XQTS provides test cases for the features required for minimal conformance to XQuery and for XQuery's optional features. All of the functions in Functions and Operators are (or will be) tested.

Implementors are encouraged 1) to write a harness for this test suite and to test their implementations, 2) to report their results to the XML Query Working Group, and 3) to submit test cases to the XML Query Working Group to help us complete our coverage of XML Query 1.0. We have provided guidelines (linked from the page above) to assist implementors in all three of these steps. We have provided a list of features for which we would particularly like to see test case submissions.

We will be using Bugzilla to track and resolve bugs that are reported. We will, from time to time, publish new versions of XQTS that contain bug fixes and additional test cases. We ask that implementors send us their results early and then send us new results as the test suite evolves and as their implementations evolve.
