- = Muse 2.x Conformance Testing Tools =
- ([ MUSE-260])
- == Feature Description/Requirements ==
- The Muse 2.x Conformance Testing Tools will be used to verify the conformance of resource
endpoints with standard Muse capabilities and/or user custom capabilities to the specification
versions implemented in Muse 2.x (WSRF 1.2, WSN 1.3, WSDM-MUWS 1.1, WSDM Event Format 1.1,
and WS-MetadataExchange). 
- == Design and Architecture ==
- The WS-I Organization ( has developed and made available the WS-I Interoperability
Testing Tools to help developers determine whether their Web Services are conformant with
defined WS-I profiles.
- These tools test Web service implementations using a non-intrusive, black box approach.
We will enhance and extend these testing tools with additional assertion statements and associated
code logic to test for conformance against the specification levels implemented in Muse 2.x
(WSRF 1.2, WSN 1.3, WSDM 1.1, and WS-MetadataExchange).
- ( More details on these tools and how they work can be found at
(under "[ Analyzer
Tool Functional Specification]", "[
Monitor Tool Functional Specification]", and "Interoperability Testing Tools 1.1") and
- The testing infrastructure is made up of two main modules, the Monitor and the Analyzer.
- The Monitor is both a message capture and logging tool. It intercepts the messages and a
logger re-formats them and stores them in a message log for later analysis. The monitor is
implemented using a man-in-the-middle approach. It intercepts and records the messages, then
it forwards to the messages to its final destination. We do not anticipate any changes or
enhancements needed to the Monitor component.
- The Analyzer is an analysis tool that verifies the conformance of Web Services artifacts
to profiles/specifications. It analyzes the messages sent to and from a Web service after
these have been captured and stored in the message log by the Monitor. The Analyzer performs
its checks based on assertions listed in a Test Assertion Document (TAD). The TAD will be
extended to include assertion statements extracted from the specification implemented in Muse
2.x. The associated code logic that the Analyzer will invoke will also be added to this component.
