|POSIX System Test Suites -- Technical Data Sheet
The Open Group has expanded it's range of test suites to
include a number of conformance tests for the IEEE POSIX standards.
This is an opportunity for leading information system suppliers
suppliers to acquire state-of-the-art test tools to ensure the
development of conformant
products to the POSIX standards. Suppliers are now also
able to demonstrate their conformance visibly through the
recently established POSIX®: Certified by IEEE and The Open Group
The Open Group is well established as the premier open systems test
supplier and certification authority. As a supplier independent and
product neutral organization, The Open Group is the logical choice in
developing standards-based test suites and certification programs.
The Open Group has a portfolio of test suites
that cover parts of IEEE Std 1003.1-1996, IEEE Std 1003.2-1992,
IEEE Std 1003.1-200x, IEEE Std 1003.13-1998 and IEEE Std 1003.12-2003.
These are available to license in a number of packages,
tailored to meet your individual testing needs.
Use of test suites is essential for proper development and
maintenance of standards-based products, ensuring conformance of
supplier products to industry-standard APIs, application portability
and interoperability. In-depth testing with Open Group test suites
identifies defects at the earliest possible point in the development
and test cycle minimizing costly defects found in the field.
The Test Suites include:
VSX-PCTS1990 - A conformance test suite for IEEE Std 1003.1-1990 system interfaces .
VSPSE54:1998 - A conformance test suite for IEEE Std 1003.13-1998 Profile PSE54 (Multipurpose Realtime).
VSPSE52:1998 - A conformance test suite for IEEE Std 1003.13-1998 Profile PSE52 (Embedded Realtime).
VSX-PCTS2003 - A conformance test suite for IEEE Std 1003.1-200x system interfaces (mandatory parts only).
VSC-PCTS2003 - A conformance test suite for IEEE
Std 1003.1-200x shell and utilities (mandatory parts only)
VSPSE52:2003 - A conformance test suite for IEEE
Std 1003.13-2003 Profile PSE52
VSPSE54:2003 - A conformance test suite for IEEE
Std 1003.13-2003 Profile PSE54
These test suites have been developed as test packages
under the Test Environment Toolkit and for VSX-PCTS the
VSXgen test framework, allowing them to be run stand-alone, or combined with other relevant
VSXgen test packages.
In addition The Open Group has developed tests for the
POSIX Realtime standards and
the Embedded POSIX Profile standards.
