Hi Juan Carlos,

when writing the Assertion document your comment from one of the last telcos came into my mind : Yes, assertions are not necessarily targeting towards an interOP scenario. Usually it's more on conformance : You need just one implementation and the test cases, not two implementations that interact. 

But to have a relevant set of InterOP test cases it may be useful to cross-check with the assertions to ensure that all important parts of the spec get tested.

Good luck with your flight. I was astouned yesterday that the ash cloud now is affecting Spain. But on a satellites photo of the ash cloud Europe suddenly looks very small ...

Dear Andreas,

Thank you very much for your document. Indeed it is very interesting.... I am afraid that I will not be able to make next Monday's call (I will be -if the ashes cloud allows it- in an ESI meeting in London)....

There is one thing that I wanted to comment though....maybe I am wrong but I would say that the assertions would be extremelly useful within the context of conformance checking, i.e., to check that a certain application is conformant to the specification. My view is that in an interoperability event, apart from the fact that applications should be aligned with the specification, the test cases should define what optional elements are present in one test case, and what values for the relevant elements and attributes both mandatory and optional present. I would say then that both are complementary, the assertions could list the things that one tool should check in the request or response, while the interoperability test case would define what elements should be present in the request, and what relevant elements.....

In my message of 19/1/2010 I made an initial proposal for scoping the interoperability test cases on the core, where I identified a number of opitional elements and optional inputs that I see that should be tested....

I was thinking in specifyint test cases by enumerating the elements and optional inputs so that each one would allow to test interoperability of certain aspects:

It is a pity that I can not make next Monday, because we could talk about that, anyway we may go on by email.
We may go on by email..:


Juan Carlos.
