|Realtime System Test Suites -- Technical Data Sheet
The Open Group has expanded it's range of test suites for the latest IEEE
POSIX® Realtime amendments. This is an opportunity for leading real-time
suppliers to acquire state-of-the-art test tools to ensure the
development of conformant POSIX®
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 schemes.
The Open Group has a portfolio of test suites
that cover the complete POSIX 1003.1-1996 standard, including POSIX
1003.1b (realtime) and POSIX 1003.1c (threads), to include the latest
POSIX Realtime amendments (1003.1d, 1003.1j and 1003.1q) and POSIX 1003.13-1998
Profiles 52 and 54 (more . . .). In
addition tests are also available for POSIX 1003.1, 2003 Edition.
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 POSIX Realtime Test Suites includes tests
- IEEE POSIX 1003.1b-1993/1003.1i-1995 Realtime extension and IEEE POSIX 1003.1,2003 Edition, including 1003.1d-1999 Additional Realtime Extension, 1003.1j Advanced Realtime Extension and 1003.1q-2000 Trace (VSRT)
- IEEE Std POSIX 1003.1c-1995 Threads (pthreads)
extension and IEEE POSIX 1003.1,2003 Edition(VSTH)
These test suites have been developed as test packages
under the Test Environment Toolkit and the
VSXgen test framework, allowing them to be run stand-alone, or combined with other relevant
VSXgen test packages.
