Requirements by Product Standard


This summarizes requirements for the Test Suites to be used in support of the Open Brand program.

The first half of the page covers the Base, Base 95, UNIX 95, COE Platform, Common Desktop Environment (CDE) Product Standards, UNIX 98 , UNIX 98 Workstation, UNIX 98 Server and new UNIX 03 Product Standards.
The second half of the page covers the complete set of individual Product Standards.

Links in the tables below are to Product Standard definitions or descriptions of the Test Suites.

Full details of all Registered Products and their related Product Standards can be obtained from the Directory of Registered Products on The Open Group's web site.


CDE

Product Standard Requirements

PRODUCT STANDARDS
REFERENCED PRODUCT STANDARDS
TEST SUITE
CDE X Window System Application Interface VSW5
Motif Toolkit API VSM4

Note that VSW5 is required for the underlying X Window System Application Interface V2 Product Standard, and will also be required for the X Window System Display Product Standard, where a graphical display is included in the hardware environment.

If the product declares itself to be conformant to one or more of the Base or UNIX Product Standards (see below) then the testing requirements of that/those Product Standards must also be considered.

Base and UNIX

This is a summary of the Open Brand and its various Product Standards and the relationship to UNIX and the Single UNIX Specification. The UNIX trademark now belongs to The Open Group.

Products which claim to conform to the Single UNIX Specification need to be registered as conformant to the UNIX 95, UNIX 98 or UNIX 03 Product Standards. There are other Product Standards which may be registered which go part of the way to the full UNIX 95 brand and these Product Standards and their composition are set out below.

Product Standard Requirements

N.B. The set of required Test Suites identified below is liable to change over time as new suites become available and approved as Indicators of Compliance.

UNIX 03 Server As for UNIX 03, plus the requirements of the Internet Server V2 Product Standard

Base 95 is an important step towards UNIX 95, as the Commands and Utilities V2 Product Standard needs full testing to the specification using the VSC Test Suite.

The UNIX 98 Product Standard is a significantly enhanced version of UNIX 95. The mandatory enhancements include

  1. Threads interfaces,
  2. Multibyte Support Extension (MSE),
  3. Large File Support,
  4. Dynamic Linking,
  5. Changes to remove hardware data-length dependencies and restrictions, and
  6. Year 2000 changes

In addition the following optional enhancements are included: Software Administration facilities and a set of APIs for realtime support.

Use of the UNIX logo and attributions

When a product is registered as conformant to UNIX 95, the UNIX trademark may be used with the attribution UNIX 95.
