Release of COBIA is being prepared by CO-LaN. M&T SIG reviewed ticket 124 and defined a strategy regarding the issue described through this ticket.

Specification of tests on implementation of Identification Common Interface specification: while describing the tests to be performed to verify the compliancy wth the CAPE-OPEN standard of any implementation of a specifically designated interface, the document is going to be used as a template for other documents pertaining to other interfaces. So the structure of the document was improved to make it more generic.
