Malcolm WOODMAN, in his role of project lead of the development of the CO-LaN Test Suite, called today for a meeting of the contractors involved in this development project (amsterCHEM, Céondo GmbH). The virtual meeting took place from 3:30 pm till 4:30 pm, Central European Summer Time.

Apart from Malcolm, Jasper van BATEN (amsterCHEM), Marcus Bruno FERNANDES SILVA (Céondo GmbH), and Michel PONS (CTO CO-LaN) attended the meeting.

The corresponding work orders have been signed by amsterCHEM and Céondo GmbH on one side and CO-LaN on the other side, following the decision made by CO-LaN Management Board to launch the step that will resolve all open tickets and lead to version 0.2.1 of CO-LaN Test Suite. As mentioned in the presentation made by Malcolm at CAPE-OPEN 2022 Annual Meeting, version 0.2.1 is meant to be offered for review to CO-LaN members willing to be involved in such a review.

During the meeting, the split of tasks between amsterCHEM, Céondo GmbH and CO-LaN was re-stated and clarified between managing tickets, resolving issues raised in tickets, verifying the changes made to the code and specifying / maintaining test specifications.

Next project meeting will take place on October 19, 2022 to review the progress made.


Any CO-LaN member with interest in the development of the set of software tools offered by CO-LaN is welcome to join. If you have the necessary expertise in programming and CAPE-OPEN, you are welcome to contribute. Please contact Malcolm WOODMAN, leader of the Interoperability SIG for further information.
