  Interactive Conformance Testing for VRML
Conformance testing is the process of testing the functionality and correctness of a given implementation against a specification.
Tests are written to generate a series of inputs, and verify the outputs for conformance to the specified behavior.
Conformance testing for VRML browsers suffers from the same problems of indirect and inaccessible effects that were outlined for testing the PHIGS standard [CUGI91].

Conformance tests should be used by implementers early-on in the development process, to improve the quality of their implementations and by industry associations wishing to administer a testing and certification program.
Conformance tests are meant to provide the users of conforming products some assurance or confidence that the product behaves as expected, performs functions in a known manner, or has an interface or format that is known.
Generically, a conformance test suite is a collection of combinations of legal and illegal inputs to the implementation being tested, together with a corresponding collection of "expected results." If such a list is provided, the starting point for the development of the test suite is the list of assertions for the standard.

 Conformance Test Specifications
A Conformance Test Purpose is a prose description of a well-defined testing objective focusing on a single requirement or a set of requirements as specified in the base requirements or another appropriate specification [an example].
The Test Suite Structure is the grouping of test purposes into logical groups and subgroups [an example] and the identifying of the test purposes with a number that reflects this structure.
For conformance testing purposes: it is mainly used to check the static conformance of the implementation and to select and parameterize the tests to be run for dynamic conformance determinations.

 Testing the Conformance Testing tools from olivier Thereaux on 2006-10-25 (www-validator@w3.org from October 2006)
Dear all, some of you may remember an earlier mail thread [1] on this list, where we discussed a list of test cases validome is using to compare their tool to other validators.
The basic idea is to create a repository of test cases that would make it possible to create simple test cases: a document, an expected conformance checking result, and references/argumentation for the expected result.
Of course, a repository of test isn't very useful if it can't be fed to a system that can run the tests (e.g [2]) and compare the output of one (or more) testing tool(s) to what is expected.

 Conformance Testing and Specification Management
Conformance testing methodologies have always been faced with the difficulty of providing a test harness that is portable across a wide variety of heterogeneous platforms.
The test itself could either be a low-level test for a given class, for example it might exercise one of the finite state machines described in the CIM Framework specification.
The test could also generate a signature for the object being tested so that in the future one could be easily verify whether the application a customer is running is indeed the one that has passed certification.

 The ebXML Test Framework And the Challenges of B2B Testing
As interoperability testing is an “expensive” activity (in terms of logistics, time and disruption), it is beneficial to focus first on the conformance of each end-point to the reference specifications, and to the proper combination of these.
As interoperability testing is an “expensive” activity (in terms of logistics, time and disruption), it is beneficial to focus first on the conformance of each end-point to the reference specifications, and to clear as many problems as possible at this time.
Test Driver and Test Service components can be combined in different architectures or test harnesses, depending on the implementation under test, or depending on the type of testing (conformance or interoperability).

 bob mcwhirter - Conformance Testing
Test Frameworks for W3C Technologies could really be about any specification from any standards (or recomendations) body.
Bear in mind that conformance and certification are not the same thing: "certification" seems to be what marketing people hear when technical people say "conformance".
Without making conformance meaningful or trying to enforce it, testing will be seen as an added bonus and will not be as central as it needs to be.

 Conformance testing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Conformance testing or type testing is testing to determine whether a system meets some specified standard.
Conformance testing is often performed by external organizations, sometimes the standards body itself, to give greater guarantees of compliance.
This test is used to simulate the coupling of low frequency signals onto the power and data lines, such as from a local AM radio station.

 Manufacturer's CORBA Interface Testing Toolkit home page
Server emulation is useful for unit testing, where one component must be tested in isolation; for system testing and integration testing when some components are not available or not trusted; and for conformance testing, to provide a more controlled testing environment.
That is, the implementation of the operation requested in the testing client's second request makes requests on servers B and C before it returns a result to the testing client.

 DGI Services - Testing Conformance
Conformance testing is used to pre-test software new to DGI testing and to ready them for the next scheduled full matrix interoperability certification.
Given that conformance platforms are just another piece of software to maintain with version changes and updates as the standard evolves, most industries have found it very difficult to recoup any monies spent on these endeavors and even once built, it does not ensure full matrix interoperability.
This is because conformance testing removes most errors but does not uncover all interoperability problems.

 Better Conformance Testing Through Automation:
Conformance testing is seen as a powerful aid to developers in implementing standards-conformant software, and thus in encouraging and speeding adoption of Recommendations.
Thus, the purview of the test suite, by definition, is to measure the accuracy with which datatypes and the datatype derivation procedure are represented by schema-enabled processors.
Initially we had hoped that the creation of a test suite for XML Schema could be accomplished largely through the manipulation of a fairly straightforward set of XML documents: primarily a document describing the set of tests to be generated along with the normative schema for schemas itself [8].

The test cases are further subdivided into well-formed and malformed, valid and invalid, namespace aware and non-namespace aware, and external entity using and self-contained test cases.
This says that the test case document can be found at the relative URL "invalid/attr06.xml", that the document at that URL is invalid (but well-formed); that it tests section 3.3.1 of the XML specification, and more specifically it tests the name token validity constraint for the NMTOKENS attribute type.
