The Interoperability SIG met from 9 am till 10 am European Central Time.


Self-certification Tester Suite proposal


Malcolm WOODMAN, Michael HALLORAN (Contractor to CO-LaN), Michel PONS (Contractor to CO-LaN / Chief Technology officer)


A review is conducted and updates performed of the presentation material describing proposal by Interoperability SIG regarding the certification process. Additional definitions will be inserted in the presentation by Michael HALLORAN.

The following points are addressed.

The notion of script as used in the presentation is discussed and made clear to be a scenario.

A step with proof of concept is needed regarding the certification suite. It involves trying out existing COLTT code within the Certification Suite rather than using COLTT to just log communication through CAPE-OPEN interfaces.A need to differentiate between a good and a bad log arises. Proposed proof of concept could be on the test of a Unit Operation PMC in a PME. CO-LaN needs to supply a script and a test PMC. For a prrof of concept, a comprehensive set of tests is not necessary.

A new version of the presentation material is made and is ready for distribution within CO-LaN.

Next conference call is scheduled for May 11, 2018.


Any CO-LaN member with interest in the development of the set of software tools offered by CO-LaN is welcome to join. Please contact Malcolm WOODMAN, leader of the SIG () for further information.
