The Open Group
The Single UNIX Specification
Version 3 Test Suite Upgrade
Open Group has updated the Single UNIX Specification to incorporate the
associated test development for version 3 of the Single UNIX Specification
and the UNIX 03 certification program
has the codename Westwood . It has been introduced
to support the UNIX 03 certification program to be launched in Year 2003.
This document provides
a brief overview of the contents of the Westwood test development.
The Single UNIX Specification
Single UNIX Specification Version 3 consists of The Open Group's Base Specifications,
Issue 6 and the X/Open Curses Issue 4 version 2 specification.
Open Group, Base Specifications Issue 6 consist of the following:
Interfaces, Issue 6
Definitions, Issue 6
& Utilities, Issue 6
Volume (Informative), Issue 6
The core volumes of the Single UNIX Specification Version 3 are also
IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 and ISO/IEC 9945:2002. (More information....)
UNIX 03 is the mark for systems conforming to Version 3 of the Single
UNIX Specification. The UNIX 03 product standard has been introduced
as the latest addition to the UNIX Certification Program. The
Westwood test suites are the official indicator of compliance
for UNIX 03.
the evolution of the UNIX trademark and associated certification program,
The Open Group announced version 3 of the Single UNIX Specification
in January 2002, with the expectation that certified products will come
to market in late 2003. In support of the certification program
a revised set of test tools has been made available from January
2003 to ensure conformance
of these new products.
The Westwood Test Suites
certification program for the Single UNIX Specification Version 3 builds
upon the existing source API test tools.
test suites utilize The Open Group's Test Environment Toolkit and the VSXgen
generic test frameworks.
following tests have been updated as part of the Single UNIX Specification
Version 3 certification program:
- The Open Group Commands and Utilities Test Suite
The Open Group Realtime Extensions Test Suite
- The Open Group Threads Test Suite
- The Open Group Core Operating System Test Suite
- The Open Group C99, LFS, MSE and Dynamic linking extensions Test Suite
- The Open Group UNIX extensions test suite
- The Open Group Additional Realtime Extension test suite (1003.1d)
- The Open Group Advanced Realtime Extension test suite (1003.1j)
- The Open Group Tracing (1003.1q) test suite
new modes have been introduced to the test suites in this revision (POSIX01
and UNIX03 modes). These
provide the test capability for both IEEE Std POSIX 1003.1-2001 and the Single
UNIX Specification Version 3.
