The Open Group has expanded it's range of test suites for the
Single UNIX Specification Version 3 and UNIX 03.
This is an opportunity for leading UNIX system suppliers
suppliers to acquire state-of-the-art test tools to ensure the
development of conformant UNIX®
System products and to demonstrate their conformance through
the UNIX certification
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 Single UNIX Specification Versions 1, 2 and 3
and the UNIX 95, UNIX 98 and UNIX 03 certification programs.
These are available to license in a number of packages,
tailored your individual testing needs. For existing
customers, information on the upgrade to the UNIX 03 tests is available.
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.
