Subject: Action Item on Conformance, Test


I took an action item at the recent F2F meeting to prepare material that makes a proposal for the approach to Conformance and
Testing for the Assembly specification.  This email contains a proposal for this action:

1) An updated specification document based on CD01-rev2

- Introduced a new appendix "Conformance Items", which is designed to contain a list of the detailed conformance requirements of
the specification, each with a label.  Each label is also a bookmark, so that it can be referenced from elsewhere in the document.

- Revised section 4 "Implementation and Component Type" for RFC 2119 and to include conformance item references for each
conformance point in the section.
-> there are editorial changes in Section 4 to remove RFC 2119 keywords from descriptive text.
-> for the normative sections, added RFC 2119 wording for each assertion that goes beyond simple exposition of an XSD structure
eg the need for service element @name attributes to be unique within a given <componentType/>
-> each assertion is followed by a tag which identifies the conformance item via its label - the tag is rendered as a bookmark cross
reference to the item in the conformance requirements table

-> Removed some material relating to intents and policySets which made normative assertions which were inappropriate in this
section of the specification (they belong in the section relating to components).

2) A Conformance Test document

This is a document which holds a section on conformance assertions, which are the basis for one or more testcases.
These assertions relate back to the "Conformance Items" list in the Assembly specification

There follows a section which details the testcases.

I hope that this forms a good basis on which to progress with the conformance and test activities.

Yours,  Mike.
